225 Gives: May the Fourth Be With You

Thursday, May 4, 2023 at 12:00am - 12:00pm

JOIN FORCES with LASM on May the 4th for 225GIVES! 

No gift is too big or small on this “Day of Giving” for LASM and other participating nonprofits in the Capital Region. All proceeds will go toward the museum's "Light LASM: The Star of BR" campaign, which will fund lighting the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium dome and the entire historic building that houses LASM. 

We can't thank the Carole & Charles Lamar Fund of the Baton Rouge Area Foundation, the Charles Lamar Family Foundation, and the Irene W. and C. B. Pennington Foundation enough for providing the generous funding needed to kick off this campaign and light the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium dome, but we need YOUR HELP to achieve our goal to light other parts of our historic building's exterior! 

Please consider giving $20, $200, or even $2,000 in honor of the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium's historic 20th anniversary this year.  

Visit 225gives.org/LASM to participate in early giving starting Thursday, April 20th, and don't forget to set your alarm at 2 PM on May the 4th for LASM's POWER HOUR!
