Ladies of the Lake Garden Club (LOL)
The “LOL” has existed at least since the 1930s and perhaps even earlier. Women of the neighborhood worked together to tend the Duck Pond and Parks and to raise money for work they could not do themselves.
The Ladies of the Lake Foundation, Inc.
To enhance its ability to seek donations and funding for the Garden Party, LOL set up a 503(c)(3) nonprofit foundation or “public charity” in 2011, which is a separate organization from LOL and has a separate board of directors.
