Thank you for another successful #GivingTuesday!
This day of giving is a
community effort, and we're grateful to have you as a part of our Lakeside family
that is committed to keeping this place beautiful for years to come.
This year, 206 families joined hands to help raise more than $97,000! Over half of the donations were given to this year's centerpiece project: the
revitalization of the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo.
Dedicated in 1979, the
Gazebo has received only minor updates
since then. Thanks to you and your generosity, we'll now be able to
update this landmark with several improvements, including fresh paint, new benches, updated landscaping and grass to even the ground. Your gifts will help enhance the programming and milestone experiences at the Gazebo for years to come.
On #GivingTuesday, Lakesiders also gave to the Lakeside Annual Fund in support of the Chautauqua program, endowment, Rhein Center, Lakeside Symphony Orchestra, Hotel Lakeside, youth programming, recreation, grounds and gardens. Gifts were given in memory of loved ones and in honor of birthdays, anniversaries and recent weddings.
Regardless of size, each gift helps to transform the lives of Lakesiders by providing opportunities for renewal and growth while nurturing mind, body and spirit.
We pause today to give thanks for the gifts and blessings Lakeside has received on #GivingTuesday and every day. Thank you for being a part of our Lakeside family.
Yours in the Spirit of Chautauqua,
