Get Involved with Give Lake!

One of the best things about the Lake of the Ozarks is the strong community ties. It seems that every week offers up some amazing event to help with local non-profit organizations and charities. This coming week is no different. However, this coming week is so important to our community because it doesn't focus on just one organization - Insure the Lake, the best insurance agency at the Lake of the Ozarks, is excited and honored to share information about the opportunity to get involved on a local level with the 3rd annual Give Lake event!

This year's “Give Lake” event will be held on May 9th. This is a 24 hour online giving event to 12 LOCAL charities coupled with a live event at HyVee Supermarket from 11am-4pm. All 12 charities will be setup under a tent in the parking lot. There will be live music and FREE FOOD for the public. The live event centers around raising awareness about the nonprofits helping local children, feeding the poor, supporting the disabled and providing for a stronger Lake community. Last year, the event raised $51,000 in 24 hours from donors across the Midwest. To Give Where You Live, visit www.Lake.GiveOzarks.org.
