#GivingTuesday is 8 Days Away
On Tuesday, Nov. 29, Lakeside Chautauqua will partner with #GivingTuesday for the fourth time, and you have a chance to become a part of this movement and support the Lakeside Fund.
 
Giving an annual gift to the Lakeside Fund is vital. Your generosity supports the Chautauqua program, maintenance of historic buildings and care for the beautiful grounds each year, which is very different than supporting a capital campaign, such as the Pool & Wellness Campaign.

Currently, Hoover Auditorium is in need of updated sound and lighting systems, which will be the centerpiece project for this year's #GivingTuesday.

To help celebrate #GivingTuesday, you can become a VIP Supporter by giving to the Hoover Auditorium Sound and Lighting Project or to an area of Lakeside that you are passionate about. Gifts of all sizes are deeply valued.
 
To participate:
  • Make an online donation today or on Nov. 29.
  • Call (419) 798-5396 to give a gift over the phone.
  • Make a check payable to the 'Lakeside Chautauqua Foundation,' Attn: #GivingTuesday, 236 Walnut Ave., Lakeside, Ohio 43440 with '#GivingTuesday' in the memo line.
Your Support Will Bring Enhancements to Hoover Auditorium Sound & Lighting
'Tis the season of gathering, reflecting, remembering, sharing and receiving the long-awaited Lakeside Chautauqua Calendar of Events brochure in the mail.

As we enjoy the changing autumn weather and scenery, Lakeside staff is hard at work finalizing next summer's roster of preachers, lecturers and performers. It can be an arduous process, especially with the evening entertainment at Hoover Auditorium, choosing what will fit into Lakesiders' interests, Lakeside's budget and Hoover's technological capabilities.

Everyone who has experienced an evening in Hoover Auditorium can likely think of some performer they would love to see on that stage, but oftentimes there are obstacles to bringing certain artists and groups to Lakeside. One of the issues most easily remedied is that of Hoover's outdated technological systems. 

In response to this increasing problem, the centerpiece project of this year's #GivingTuesday initiative will be funding upgrades for Hoover Auditorium's sound and lights.

What is #GivingTuesday?
Lakeside Chautauqua has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving.
 
Taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 29, it harnesses the collective power of non-profits, families, businesses and individuals to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season.
 
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving holiday and the kick-off of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday reminds people about the importance of giving by inspiring them to improve their communities and support charities and causes.
