‘Step Up for Lakeside’ Challenge

This summer, you’re invited to participate in the ‘Step Up for Lakeside’ Challenge.

If 200 or more Lakesiders begin or renew their Lakeside Fund support before Monday, Aug. 8, a generous group of Lakeside families have committed to give a combined $60,000 donation to the Lakeside Fund. Gifts of any size help unlock this Challenge gift.

Your participation by giving to the Lakeside Fund allows thousands of friends, families and guests to nurture mind, body and spirit, create cherished memories and make lifelong friends at Lakeside.

Additionally, those who participate in the Challenge will be invited to a special ‘Big Splash’ Pool Party on Tuesday, Aug. 2. 

If you already give to the Lakeside Fund, thank you for your generous support. You, too, can participate in the Challenge. When new or renewing individuals mention your name when they give, you will also be invited to the “Big Splash’ Pool Party. Invite your friends, family and neighbors to give a gift of any size to the Lakeside Fund to ensure you are part of the fun.

We need all hands on deck to meet our $1.1 million Lakeside Fund goal, and your participation in this Challenge will transform, revitalize and protect everything you love most about Lakeside.

“Lakeside’s 149th Chautauqua season is another crucial year,” says Kip Greenhill, Lakeside Chautauqua President & CEO. “Gifts of every size make a difference and add up in transformational ways. If you’re confident in Lakeside’s future and you believe that the best days of Lakeside are ahead of us like I do, I ask that you give a gift of any amount to the Lakeside Fund.”

Show your love, care and kindness alongside 200 Lakesiders to make an incredible difference. Together, we can unlock the ‘Step Up for Lakeside’ $60,000 Challenge gift and continue to be the great community so many of you love and feel most at home.
