Proceeds will benefit PTA programs as well as new technology for the school. Some 300 families attended the event, which included a silent auction and food from Lake Oswego Lions Club, Bambuza Vietnam Kitchen and Yodelish, parent Kate Firmin says.

“It was a wonderful event for Lake Grove families,” Firmin says.

Children were treated to a photo booth, tunes spun by a disc jockey, face painting, an inflatable slide and a visit from the Lake Oswego Fire Department, along with red hats for the children and an engine to gawk over. Other features included an Asula Wellness booth and a Lakeshore Learning supply store craft table.

There also was a walkathon competition, Lake Oswego High School cheerleading performance and clinic, Westside Dance & Gymnastics Academy performances and a Northwest Fencing Academy performance and clinic.
