The 9th Annual Champagne Campaign will toast to the people on the frontline and the community-minded businesses and philanthropists making a difference at the Lake on Friday, Sept. 29, at La Roca Club.

Entrepreneurs are showing passion for the community by supporting local non-profits through the Community Foundation of the Lake’s signature charity event of the year.

The 9th Annual Champagne Campaign will toast to the people on the frontline and the community-minded businesses and philanthropists making a difference at the Lake on Friday, Sept. 29, at La Roca Club.

Over the years, the Champagne Campaign has funded more than $200,000 in grants to support local non-profit organizations making the Lake a better place to live.

This year, the Champagne Campaign has received support through many corporate sponsorships.

“These businesses reached deep into their pockets to support the cause months before the event,” said CFL President Amanda Fagan. “The Champagne Campaign is off to a phenomenal start and we would love to see that momentum continue for the benefit of the dozens of charities that depend on grants from CFL.”

Corporate donations will be accepted up to the 9th Annual Champagne Campaign from 5-8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 29, at La Roca Club. The CFL’s signature event draws hundreds of attendees each year for hors d’oeuvres, libation, networking, live music, and a champagne toast.

All proceeds from CFL’s signature event stay local and are distributed as grants to non-profit organizations in the Lake of the Ozarks area.

Donations can be given in any amount, unrestricted to benefit community needs identified by the CFL Board of Directors or directed by donors for a specific program or purpose.

CFL’s mission is to build the educational, cultural, health and economic development of the Lake community. The board manages a variety of funds established by families, individuals, and corporations to support this mission. The local organization is affiliated with the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, headquartered in Springfield, Mo., allowing for low administration costs, resources, support and workshops to guide non-profit agency partners to success.

CFL was created and exists to be the focus of charitable giving in Miller, Morgan, and Camden counties.
