Tickets for the 2017 Linda Mae Mahon Lema Foundation Annual Performance and Dinner event are now available. The event is also the Grand Finale to the Greater Elk Grove Area History Week. Tickets will include a catered dinner, wine, valet parking, live music, and a performance.
The LMML Foundation event will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at the Willow Ballroom. The venue is a very large and beautiful indoor setting nested in the historic fruit and vegetable packing and shipping complex along the Sacramento River in Hood.
The LMML Foundation is also pleased to announce that this year’s live performance at the event will feature the story of the Jackson Family of the Florin and Elk Grove areas. Arriving in Sacramento in 1861, the Jackson family quickly settled in Florin and, as cited in a commemorative booklet published by the Florin Historical Society in 1985, “bore an important part of the work of early development and improvement, assisting largely in laying the foundation of the present progress and prosperity of the county.”
In the performance, we will follow the family through the years, pausing and reflecting on one particular member’s accomplishments. Her stalwart commitment to bringing a better life to all the residents of the Florin area added to the long legacy of the Jackson family, which proudly continues today. While there are many family stories of phenomenal accomplishment from which to choose, the LMML Foundation found this story to be powerful, yet poignant—one deserving to be shared with the larger community.
This year’s performance will feature a live play reading performed by several very accomplished local actors. The evening will also include live music and vocal performances by local talent, and will highlight some very unique aspects of area life at the turn of the 20th Century, including a riverboat journey from Sacramento to San Francisco.
