2023 Lighten Up



What does it take to make this event possible? First and foremost, your participation and support for the lighting and design community! Craft materials to build the luminaire, and food and drinks to fuel our participants’ creative minds!

Tidewater IES is relying on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. The money raised will be used to purchase items listed below, enough for up to 30-35 individuals. As a sponsor, your business logo will be added to all LIGHTEN UP Tidewater promotional materials and social media content, and sponsors are encouraged to display their company’s marketing materials during the event. Want to do a little extra? Sponsors are welcome to contribute and provide additional prizes! Contact Vice-President, Laura Ashley A. Alferes [email protected] to learn more about LIGHTEN UP.
