The Community Foundation of the Lake has announced that Melissa and Chris “Pappo” Galloway will be the honorary chairs of their annual fundraiser.
Long time business owners and philanthropists, the Galloways are a perfect fit to represent the mission of the CFL which is to assist in building the educational, cultural, health and economic development of our community.
Chris “Pappo” has generously given to the community in so many ways and said, “It is our pleasure to support this event put on by the Community Foundation of the Lake. It is important to us to support the Lake community where our thriving businesses reside. We look forward to being there September 7.”
The traditional Champagne Campaign fundraiser that many are familiar with will be replaced with a more upbeat, fun-filled outdoor event called Shakespeare Under the Stars this year.
Shakespeare Under the Stars is a tribute to the Lake area's art, music and cultural endeavors. The Sunrise Beach Little Theatre will perform an original Shakespeare-themed skit, the Lake Jazz band and Mike Dunklee and his Healing Box Project will both perform. A magician will perform, and there will be Shakespeare-themed games, a basket raffle and other activities to round out the evening.
Shakespeare Under the Stars is on September 7 at La Roca Club. Tickets are $60 which include a buffet dinner provided by Pappos and Mama Citas. Corporate and Table Sponsorships are available by calling Jane Wright at 573-348-2816 or by going to the CFL website at www.communityfoundationofthelake.com.
