#GivingTuesday, a global day of giving back, is right around the corner. This year, on Nov. 27, we invite you to become a part of this special day by giving to the Lakeside Annual Fund in support of renovating our basketball, sand volleyball and multi-purpose courts, as well as enhancing recreational programming.

Help Renovate the Basketball, Sand Volleyball & Multi-Purpose Courts

#GivingTuesday is truly a community effort, and we cherish this day of coming together as a Lakeside family for an annual cause.

Because of your generosity on #GivingTuesday in years past, you have enhanced the Chautauqua program and improved facilities for thousands of families, including repairs to Bradley Temple, renovations to the miniature golf course, creating new programs and a designated space for teens at The Underground, enhancing the Hoover Auditorium experience with a new sound system, and soon the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo will be refreshed, which was last year’s project. View the layout.

Your financial support on #GivingTuesday this year will help renovate the basketball, sand volleyball and multi-purpose courts along the lakefront and enhance the recreational programming that takes place in the park.

Generations of Lakesiders have grown up on these courts, making new friends, reconnecting with familiar faces, learning the importance of teamwork and staying active outdoors. It’s hard to walk past them without reliving memories of pickup games in the park as kids. Now as adults, we enjoy these same courts, playing with our children or grandchildren, and passing on a Lakeside tradition to the next generation. View the Bettinger Park Site Plan.
