Thanks for the support!

Our first fundraising event was a great success.

Over 200 people attended Lake Erie Foundation’s inaugural fundraising event – Celebrate the Lake and a great time it was!

Sponsors and guests came out to support the important work of the Lake Erie Foundation in its mission to improve the health and future of Lake Erie. The event was presented by Huntington National Bank and many other businesses. Our speakers included Jim Stouffer, President of Lake Erie Foundation and CEO of Catawba Island Club, Matt Fisher, Vice President and our guest speaker, Dr. Chris Winslow, Director of Ohio Sea Grant, Stone Lab and recent appointee to Lake Erie Foundation Board of Trustees.

We thank each and everyone for their generosity. We look forward to next year’s event.
