"Give Where You Live" - Give Lake 2017

There is a very intriguing event coming to the Lake of the Ozarks, and Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park want to make sure that everyone in the lake area knows all about. Give Lake is a 1-day, online event focusing on raising funds and awareness for many local non-profits in the lake area.


A Special Event For 12 Great Local Organizations
Give Lake is a part of the bigger Give Ozarks day of giving event taking place on Tuesday, May 9, 2017 from 12 am until midnight. Throughout the Ozarks, more than 225 non-profits will be helped. "Give where you live" is the theme, and here at the Lake, 12 local non-profits that work to make the lake community a stronger place will benefit from local donations. Last year this incredible event raised $51,000 in just 24 hours, and this year they hope to raise even more!   
  • Kids' Harbor
  • Lake Area Big Brothers/ Big Sisters
  • Wonderland Camp
  • Lake of the Ozarks Developmental Center, Inc.
  • Children's Learning Center
  • Medical Missions For Christ Clinic
  • Food For Morgan County
  • Westlake Aquatic Center
  • The National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church - The Mothers Shrine
  • The Lake Arts Council
  • Missouri Forget-Me-Not Horse Rescue & Sanctuary
  • Citizens Against Domestic Violence (CADV) 

Live Party At Hy-Vee
While Give Ozarks is an online event, the Community Foundation of the Lake is hosting a live event from 11 am - 4 pm on May 9 in the Hy-Vee Supermarket parking lot in Osage Beach. Share the excitement of this great event with others and meet the people working at the local non-profits benefiting from this 24-hour online event. Free food will be available for everyone that stops by, and live music will be performed by Shawn C. 


Donating Is Easy
They've made it simple to make a donation. On May 9, donors can go to www.Lake.GiveOzarks.org to reach the lake area directly, or you can visit www.GiveOzarks.org for a list of all of the non-profits involved across the Midwest. They can be searched for by name, category, or a particular area of interest. When you find the one (or more) that you would like to make a donation to, simply click the orange "Donate Now" button at the top of that agency's page. There will be prompts to walk you through the process, or you can watch this step-by-step video

Bonus Money
The very generous sponsors for Give Lake 2017 have made it possible for the Community Foundation of the Ozarks to provide $101,500 in prizes to be awarded to the winning agencies in different categories. Every time someone makes a donation to a specific non-profit, that agency will be given a "ticket" into a random, hourly drawing for $1,500, and there are 13 of these "Luck of the Draw" prizes available. Your donation just may be the winning "ticket" for your non-profit to receive even more money! 

There are many other categories in which the non-profits can qualify for other bonus prize amounts; Jackpots, prizes for early donations, prizes for specific hours that might not normally attract a lot of people, and many more. You can see a full list of these bonus prizes here. It may help you decide what time you want to make your donations. 

Please mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 9 so that you remember to make your donation during the 24-hour period, and be sure to share this information with everyone you know, either on social media, by word of mouth, or better yet, both! The more people that know, the more money will be raised, and these wonderful local organizations can continue to do their important work to make our community better. Join Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park to give where you live!
