Fun Filled Events with a Purpose


the crossing - paddlersOur events are designed to provide enjoyment, fun, and entertainment while raising funds that are turned right back into the Lake Gaston community. We have no paid officers and we work extremely hard to find donations covering all aspects of our events keeping expenses to an absolute minimum. All this effort ensures that for each dollar raised, nearly the entire dollar is returned to the Lake Gaston community. 

We host the following fund raising events: 

  • The Crossing - 2nd Saturday every August

  • Fall for the Arts - 4th Saturday every other October (biennial event)

 

O’Sail  has presented grants to other not for profits that provide services to the lake Gaston community.   These funds come from the events that O’Sail hosts.  See the Grant Recipients page for more information.
