The charity will do much of its fundraising at nine lakefront restaurants throughout the summer.

The Lake of the Ozarks Idiots Club just concluded a great fiscal year of helping children in need at Lake of the Ozarks.  More than 5,450 child assists were provided by the 501(c)3 charity. To accomplish this, $151,818 was spent on items given directly to the children. These included clothes, eye glasses, food, scholarships, school needs, car repairs. You name it, they probably gave it.

Now it is time to start fundraising for the new fiscal year. The charity will do much of its fundraising at nine lakefront restaurants throughout the summer. This schedule is on the 2019 fundraising schedule page at www.LakeOfTheOzarksIdiotsClub.org.
