ROAR (Raising Our Allocation Resources) is Lakeside Parents and Guardians Association's biggest party and fundraiser of the year. The event includes a reception and silent auction, dinner, live auction, and after-auction dance party. This event is a great opportunity to have fun with others in the community and help raise money for Lakeside!
Funds raised are given back to the school through the Parents and Guardians Association. These funds help support financial aid, professional development, and classroom tools (past examples include cutting-edge lab equipment, art supplies, 3-D printers), as well as the school’s general operating fund. Every Middle and Upper school student benefits from these funds!
How can I get involved?
There are myriad ways you can support ROAR. All are welcome to participate in the event in a way that works for you and your family. Lakeside needs volunteers in a variety of areas with many different skill sets. You can volunteer before the auction by joining one of the many ROAR committees, or help out on the day or night of the auction. Volunteers are also needed at pre-auction work parties. Another way to help is to organize a group of Lakeside families to sit together at the auction (tables seat ten to twelve). Whatever your talents or your time commitment, we'd love to have you involved. Click here
