Lakeside Chautauqua has joined #GivingTuesday, a national day of giving.
Taking place on Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014, #GivingTuesday 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 Thanksgiving and the kick-off of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday reminds people about the importance of giving by inspiring them to improve their local communities or support important charities and causes.
For the second time, Lakeside Chautauqua will partner with the national #GivingTuesday movement and introduce an initiative that supports the enhancement of the miniature golf course.
Lakeside Chautauqua encourages local non-profits, families, businesses and individuals to join the movement this year and plan a special initiative to encourage the spirit of giving across Ottawa County.
Last year, more than 3,000 corporate and non-profit organizations committed to participating in #GivingTuesday. This year, more organizations are expected to join and create a global day for giving back.
Lakeside Chautauqua plans to raise money for a refresh of the miniature golf course along Ohio’s Most Beautiful Mile as this year’s initiative.
Built in the 1960’s, the Lakeside miniature golf course is a multigenerational family tradition. Families gather for their own tournaments or to teach a younger sibling how to play.
After 51 years, it is still a cherished tradition along the lakefront that allows families to reconnect, enjoy the slower pace and share in youthful fun at Lakeside.
