Leap Day Non-Event

Posted January 2, 2020

After much careful consideration our Event Committee has decided that it's time to come up with a winter event. Fundraising is such an integral part of what we do here at Lassen Park Foundation, and putting on community events is the most fun way we know how to do that! We even have an ideal date in mind to have a fundraiser: Leap Day, February 29, 2020!

The trouble is, during those winter months up at Lassen how and where do you put on an event?

Now that the snow has fallen we're all looking forward to skiing, snow shoeing, and yes even snow camping. We don't want to keep people inside at a fancy dinner in the evening, or in a parking lot at noon on Saturday talking to vendors in the cold... not when there's snow to play in. We want to make snow angels during the day, and to have hot cocoa and curl up with a good book in front of the fire in the evenings. As exciting as it sounds to put on an event, what we'd rather do is spend those cold winter days enjoying Lassen!

With that in mind, we decided to NOT have an event. Rather, we're having a Non-Event on Leap Day!

We want you to NOT come to an event. We want you to NOT buy a fancy outfit to wear, and NOT book a babysitter for the kids that night. We DON'T want you to give up your day in the snow, and we DON'T want you to give up curling up with a good book in front of the fire with hot cocoa in hand.

What we DO want you to do is to send us a donation for the amount you would have spent on that babysitter, or the outfit, or on your diner, or the night in a hotel... Instead of going through all the trouble and cost attending a fundraiser entails, we want you to take it easy this winter and do what YOU want to do! Just send us your donation and we'll take care of the rest.

This Leap Year Day, DON'T come to an event! Just send us your support.

This is our Non-Event Leap Day Event.
