February 23 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Loving Lakewood: There's No Place Like Home

UPDATE: Tickets for Loving Lakewood: There’s No Place Like Home are Sold Out.

“If you ever go looking for your heart’s desire, you don’t have to look any further than your own backyard.” — Dorothy Gale, The Wizard of Oz

Click your heels together and join us over the rainbow where troubles melt like lemon drops for a night of celebrating community vibrancy!  LakewoodAlive will host Loving Lakewood: There’s No Place Like Home sponsored by Cleveland Property Management Group on Saturday, February 23, 2019, from 7:30 to 11 p.m. at the Lakewood Masonic Temple.

Guests are cordially invited to don cocktail attire with Oz flair to partake in a celebration of 15 years of LakewoodAlive and 10 years of our Housing Outreach Program at our annual winter fundraiser.  The Oz-inspired setting within this historic Downtown Lakewood venue will have you off to see the wizard and ready to tell Toto you’re not in Kansas anymore.

The Lakewood Masonic Temple will be the site of “Loving Lakewood: There’s No Place Like Home”

This Over the Rainbow opportunity includes all General Admission ticket offerings plus early entrance at 6:30 p.m., access to closer (first come, first served) free parking, open bar for the first hour, two drink tokens and entrance into a VIP-only “There’s No Place Like Home” raffle drawing that will even make Dorothy and Toto jealous.

General Admission Ticket (Sold Out)
This ticket will make you think you aren’t in Kansas anymore by bringing you to Oz (the Masonic Temple) at 7:30 p.m., where you’ll receive unlimited food, one drink token and access to all of our Emerald City-flavored fun like a glittering game of chance, auctions and special visitors from Oz.

Proceeds will support LakewoodAlive’s programming as we strive to foster and sustain vibrant neighborhoods in Lakewood.  Much like Dorothy and the cast of characters following the yellow brick road to Emerald City, we at LakewoodAlive possess the heart, brains and courage necessary to assist the wonderful residents of Lakewood along the journey to achieving an even more vibrant community.
