Lake Thoreau Residents Invited to Light the Lake for Charity

Holiday Lights/Credit: FlickrLake Thoreau residents – there is still time to show your holiday spirit in lights for a good cause.

The Lake Thoreau Entertainment Association invites all residents of the lake to participate in the third annual Lake Thoreau Festival of Winter Lights. The association’s goal is to have as many houses, townhouse, boats, and condos to light up their lake-facing side.

Last year’s festival raised more than $10,000 for nonprofits.

To get maximum participation, anonymous donors will donate the following for each condo, house, and boat that lights up the night:

  • $15 to Road Dawgs and Outward Bound Baltimore grant. Road Dawgs is and anti-gang initiative sponsored by the Fairfax County Police. Outward Bound is a wilderness program that teaches self reliance
    and develops confidence. You can found out information on both with the by clicking

  • $10 to to Cornerstones.

In addition, the association invites anyone who wants to become an additional donor to one of the above organizations or to another charity on a per-house basis. Choose your own pet cause and have the light up the lake challenge decided your contribution. Any amount would be appreciated (even a dime per home or boat).
