Grand Event

Grand Event VIII: Called to Serve - April 13, 2019 where so many answered the call!
Raising net proceeds of $92,000 with another sold out crowd, we humbly thank our God for blessing our USO themed event -- inspired by Paul's encouragement to the Galatian Christians, "After all, brothers, you were called to freedom. Only do not use your freedom as a starting point for your sinful flesh. Rather, serve one another through love." (5:13) We are grateful for your freely-offered prayers and efforts for Lakeside, a ministry with its mission to assist parents in educating, encouraging and equipping teens for life -- not just for their earthly lives, but life eternal -- when our freedom will be complete.

Past Years 

Our Grand Event VII: Decades of Faithfulness - Apr. 7, 2018, was a grand success!
About 300 guests came “Back to School” and almost 70 students and dozens of adult volunteers worked hard—all to support Christian education—and netted about $82,000! New this year was spirit rock bidding, class baskets, and send someone to the principal's office. So much fun coming back to school! Check out photos from the night on our SmugMug page. 


Grand Event VI: Shine like Stars - April 8, 2017 was a night to remember!
Our donors, guests and volunteers sure did shine brightly to reflect their love for Jesus, Lakeside, and Christian education. WOW! Our theme was based on Philippians 2:15 and we couldn't be more grateful for all. the. blessings. Raising over $108K, we were able to distribute the proceeds generously for ATHLETICS, BUILDING DEBT, NEW BUSES, DRAMA, FACS KITCHEN LABS, GENERAL OPERATING, OPERATION GO, STEM ROBOTS, and STUDENT ASSISTANCE. Fun photos here SmugMug.
Grand Event V: Walk by Faith was held on February 13, 2016 at Windwood of Watertown
Our 2016 garden theme was inspired by Paul's reminder in 2 Corinthians, "for we walk by faith, not by sight". What a lovely walk it can be when we trust in the LORD's promises. We are grateful for your prayers and efforts for Lakeside. An off campus venue hosted 250 guests who helped raise over $55,000 for so many areas: Band, Building Debt, Kitchen, Operation Go, Student Assistance, Tech Ed, and Transportation. We are so grateful for our generous guests, donors, and volunteers! See event photos on SmugMug.
Grand Event IV: Anchored in Faith - March 28, 2015
We held our 4th annual Grand Event at Lakeside Lutheran High School. The silent auction was in the cafeteria and the dinner and live auction was in the west gymnasium; the entire venue was decorated in a nautical theme. Guests in attendance totaled 205, raising a net profit of $45,000. Over 450 items were donated for the Silent/Live Auctions, Dessert Sail, Jewelry Treasure Hunt, Wine Pull and for event decorations. Nearly 200 volunteers -- students & parents, faculty & staff, and Kohls Associates in Action -- made the night possible for our wonderful attendees.
