Local Businesses Support Building OE Lakeside

By: Group 7even Last Updated: July 12, 2010

The weekend of June 24-27, local businesses contributed to the development of OE Lakeside by donating a percentage of their sales to the project. They also offered the chance to purchase an "OE Lakeside tree" for $1 and displayed the "trees" in their business.

Due to a matching grant from the Dean and Barbara White Family foundation, every dollar given to OE Lakeside for the next year will be doubled, up to $2,000,000.

Building OE Lakeside weekend was extremely successful. The generosity of the businesses and the community was amazing. To learn more about OE Lakeside, visit their website or find them on Facebook.
