We were all a little sad to let go of "Fireside Friday," our annual fundraiser at Hal Warheim's house, because we all loved the ease, simplicity and intimacy of the event. Everyone loved being in Hal's home sharing food and wine, catching up with neighbors. An added bonus was the money raised.
This year we had to brainstorm new fundraising ideas for the park. We decided on a comedy night and a Lakeside Swim Club membership raffle and are excited to say that we "knocked it out of the park" with both events.
We raised over $1500 at Stand Up for Hal: A Night of Comedy for Hal Warheim Park on February 11. A special thank you to the Bard's Town for hosting and to comedian (and neighbor) Mack Dryden for providing the comedy. We hope to organize another comedy night next year, perhaps at a bigger venue.
We also raised over $7000 with the Lakeside Swim Club membership raffle. We sold 75 tickets at $100 each and our winner was selected and notified Sunday night. We know what an amazing experience it is to be part of the Lakeside Swim Club community and we look forward to hosting another sponsorship raffle next year.
The Warheim Park Association thanks you for your support in both events. All money raised goes towards maintenance and beautification of the park.
What's coming up next? Join us on Saturday, March 24 for a Volunteer Work Day at the park. See details on the event page.
