The auction party sells out every year, so guests should buy tickets early. Doors will close at 12:30 a.m. See details below:

This must-attend party of the year will feature a live auction and silent auction. There will also be a casino lounge. 

Guests can dress to the nines as their favorite movie star, movie character or in the latest fashionable formals and enter the “Star Struck” costume contest featuring incredible prizes. Dallas area favorite entertainment band Limelight will get the crowd on their feet with chart toppers and classic hits. 

Partygoers can create their own memories through souvenir photos of guests arriving on the red carpet. 


“Let’s go to the movies! Let’s go BE the stars! We want everybody to party like the celebrities do,” said LECPTA Party Co-Chair Courtney Bock Mathews. “Guests should wear either costumes from their favorite movie, dress like a favorite Hollywood celebrity or come in gala attire for a Hollywood movie premiere.”


Additional funds are provided by Lakewood Home Festival underwriters, including Advocate Magazine and Comerica Bank®, and an array of sponsors including Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, the auction party title sponsor and candlelight sponsor; plus home-tour ticket sales. 


Hosted by the LECPTA, the Lakewood Home Festival is a community-wide event that raises funds for Lakewood Elementary School, J.L. Long Middle School and Woodrow Wilson High School. The funds directly benefit students through the purchase of school materials, computers and enrichment programs. Attended by thousands of patrons annually, the Lakewood Home Festival has raised millions of dollars for local schools since 1976. Last year’s festival, alone, raised over $187,000 for the three schools, setting a new record. 


Whether or not they attend the auction party, visitors to the Lakewood Home Festival can tour a diverse selection of inspiring Lakewood homes throughout the weekend. Visit for more information.
