#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving. On Dec. 3, you're invited to become a part of this special day by giving to the Lakeside Annual Fund in support of the Lakeside's iconic landmark - the Pavilion!


#GivingTuesday 2019

#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 by making repairs and renovations to Bradley Temple and 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, refreshing the Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo and renovating the sports courts in Bettinger Park.


Preserve the Tradition

The Pavilion has been a symbol of the Lakeside community for 110 years.

The first Pavilion, built in 1909, remained intact until 1961. Due to its age and several structural damages, it was torn down to make room for a more modern version. The second pavilion was built in 1961. And in 1987, the newest Pavilion, inspired by the 1909 structure, was built and is still admired by Lakeside families and friends today.

Only receiving minor repairs over the last 32 years, your support as a community on #GivingTuesday will help raise money to update the Pavilion with the following:

  • ADA accessible ramp to the West Deck
  • Repairs to the stairs
  • Heating and cooling in the Pavilion Upper Room
  • Replace exterior lighting
  • Fresh paint
