Light the World Virtual 

BLESS is monitoring the mayor of  Austin's and Governor Abbott's reports on COVID and possible closures of venues.  If either office does make a decision to move forward with closures and the exclusive in-person event is cancelled, we will move forward with the virtual event for our BLESS family.  More information will be provided via email with all information needed to view the program and participate in the live auction.  Thank you for understanding and please reach out to dana@bless.world if you have questions.
