It's a great time for dozens of local charities. Community Foundation of the Lake invites everyone to the 'FUN'raiser! Champagne Campaign at La Roca in Osage Beach. The doors open at 6 p.m., Sept. 25, to an array of great food, games and live music by The M-Dock Band. 

The money raised from CFL's annual fundraiser benefits dozens of lake area charities supporting local people. 

The Community Foundation of the Lake (CFL) has announced Mike and Sandy Waggett as the honorary chairs of this year's annual fundraiser.

Long-time business owners and philanthropists, CFL says the Waggetts are a perfect fit to represent the foundation's mission to assist in building the educational, cultural, health and economic development of the Lake community.

“We are glad to have the opportunity to be honorary chairs of this year’s Champagne Campaign,” Sandy said. “We wholeheartedly support the mission of the Community Foundation of the Lake and have seen the great things that this organization has done at the Lake of the Ozarks. The grants that they provide various charity organizations in the area really allow many of these groups to help thousands of lake residents in need. We also admire their focus on the cultural, health, educational and economic development of the Lake of the Ozarks and we are honored to be a part of this year’s Champagne Campaign. Please consider attending this event and giving generously to the Community Foundation of the Lake.”

CFL points out 100% of all contributions to the foundation stay in the local Lake of the Ozarks area.

The Champagne Campaign fundraiser that many are familiar with will take on a new “fun”raiser vibe this year, with fun-filled outdoor adult games, silent and live auctions. Held at La Roca Club, dancing and other activities will round out the evening. The event sponsor this year is Farmers Insurance, a longtime supporter of CFL. Gold level sponsors to date are Scott's Concrete; Brad Ekstam, Owner and Founder of FASS Fuel Systems; ReMax; and Shawnee Bluff Winery. Corporate and Table Sponsorships are available by calling Jan Amos at 321-258-5828 or by going to the CFL website:
