Jennifer Lawrence is once again spreading philanthropic love to Louisville, and this time, she’ll be here live and in the flesh to prove how every person has the power to impact the lives of young people.

The event, titled “The Power of One,” will be held at the Frazier History Museum — the same location where “The Hunger Games: The Exhibition” is now on display — on July 14, and feature a rare appearance by Lawrence along with other “Hunger Games” castmates and director Francis Lawrence (not related).

While admission to the 21-and-over event is a bit steep — $1,000 for a dinner experience, or $500 for a rooftop afterparty — the money raised will benefit the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation.

The evening includes a cocktail party complete with specialty-themed drinks by Michter’s, hors d’oeuvres by Chef Dean Corbett and several other local chefs, as well as live music by Linkin Bridge, Louisville Orchestra’s Teddy Abrams, and several other “talented local and national musicians,” the press release states.

That all begins at 6 p.m., while the afterparty starts at 9 p.m. on the rooftop of the museum and goes until midnight.

If you’re a “Hunger Games” and/or JLaw fan and can swing the ticket price, it’ll likely be a night to remember. If you don’t have the dough, maybe hang around Gerstle’s and see if she stops by to pregame.
