In Memory of Brandon Mulina

 With heavy hearts and profound sadness, we announce the passing of a remarkable individual, our beloved Vice President Brandon Mulina.

A beacon of progression and compassion, he ensured everyone involved with the Hammond Regional Arts Center felt welcomed and had the best time at events, both big and small. Brandon left an indelible mark on our organization and all who had the privilege of meeting him.

Brandon was a member of the Hammond Regional Arts Center since 2006 and served as a Board Member since 2016. His warm smile, infectious laugh, and unwavering dedication endeared him to everyone he met, fostering an environment of camaraderie and inspiration. Brandon's invaluable contributions were instrumental in propelling our organization to unprecedented heights of success, and his absence leaves a void that can never be filled.

As we mourn this irreplaceable loss, we also celebrate a life lived with purpose and generosity, a legacy that will forever resonate within the fabric of our organization. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brandon's family and loved ones during this difficult time.

This was Brandon’s passion. He loved you guys. We couldn’t always make events once I had babies and now young kids, but he’d step outside if we had our strollers or whatever it took to see friends and get friends to the HRAC.” - Neal Laura
