Fundraising

Lago Lindo Community League, like most other “not for profit” groups, associations, and organizations, needs to raise funds from time to time to supplement our annual grants and registration fees, so we can continue to offer social and sports programs to our members at reasonable costs. The last few years have seen the Community League use bingos, casinos and our family night activities at West Edmonton Mall to raise needed funds.

It takes many great and giving volunteers to make any fundraising event a success.
On behalf of everyone who benefits from the work of those volunteers, we say “THANK YOU!”

Like all volunteer-staffed events, we have on occasion experienced an increasing difficulty getting people to step forward and help, and in some cases to honor the volunteer commitments they have made. Please remember that your assistance and involvement directly benefit our Community, our children, and our programs. These programs and events can not, and do not run themselves. Without fulfillment of your volunteer commitments, programs sponsored by the Community League will become a lot more expensive, or in some cases might be dropped, and no longer offered. Your continued support will ensure a wealth of programs remain here in Lago Lindo for generations to come.

50/50

Bishop Greschuk is doing a 50/50 for a playground. The school was built 25 years ago and has never had a playground, so this is awesome. Below is the link.
