Lake Ridge Academy Auction Gala

Lake Ridge Academy Fundraising Consulting Contract HM Edits Page 1Please Join us at the Lake Ridge Academy City Lights Auction Gala and Runion presented by Kemper House, Saturday, November 17, 2018, at the Hilton Cleveland Downtown.

The Auction Gala is a longstanding Lake Ridge Academy tradition and offers a fun opportunity to gather with parents, alumni, and friends. This formal event has become an integral component for the school's success in providing an exceptional education for our children. 

In a single evening, the event provides as much financial support for school programs as the Annual Fund. In just the last decade alone, the auction has made it possible for Lake Ridge Academy to upgrade computer labs, renovate campus spaces, complete funding for the new Kemper Science and Engineering building, and meet many other school needs that are not covered by tuition. Proceeds from the event provide significant enhancements to school programs, and participation from many families has strengthened our Lake Ridge Academy community.

The auction gala will also kick off a week-long of celebration for Lake Ridge Academy alumni and friends and where we will honor four deserving members of the Lake Ridge community during the Hall of Fame ceremony. 

Again, we hope you will join us for this wonderful night to support our incredible students and for one or all of the events we have planned for Reunion Week. For more information or questions about advertising and sponsorship opportunities contact Leannie McAllister at
