#GivingTuesday Takes Center Stage -
Thank You!
#GivingTuesday is truly a community effort, and we thank you for being part of the Lakeside family. 
 
Together,  206 families participated and raised more than $97,000 toward the Lakeside Fund.

The centerpiece of this year's #GivingTuesday was the Hoover Sound & Lighting Project. Because of you, the Hoover experience will be enhanced for everyone - performers, preachers, lecturers and guests alike.
 
In addition, families also supported the Chautauqua program, endowment, Chautauqua Park, youth programming, Ohio's Most Beautiful Mile, Hotel Lakeside, Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Center, recreation grounds and gardens on #GivingTuesday. Gifts were made in honor of loved ones' birthdays and anniversaries and in memory of Lakesiders.  
 
Regardless of size, each gift will help 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. Here are some ways you can continue to stay involved:   
  • Share our Lakeside Facebook page with friends and family.  
  • Encourage your friends and family to sign up for our e-newsletter. 
  • Share the Lakeside Calendar with a friend and invite them to a program, event or activity.   
What is #GivingTuesday?
Thanks to our social media outreach, which shared the #GivingTuesday hashtag, many individuals may have heard about Lakeside for the first time. Throughout the day, Lakesiders shared stories of gratitude, reflected on blessings received and encouraged others to give. 

Here are a few reflections shared: 
 
"We love attending performances and church at Hoover and are happy to support this project to update the Hoover sound and lighting system!"
 
"This gift is in support of the #GivingTuesday project. We think this is a great choice."
 
"Lakeside has been an important part of our extended family's life since 1973. We are pleased to participate in #GivingTuesday."
 
"This gift is for #GivingTuesday. I would like it to be in memory of my first boss, George Moser, a beloved Lakeside employee."
