The ALO continues to be one of the top contributors to the LO, donating more than $2.5 million since its inception in 1944.  Comprised of 350 members and led by a 35-member board, its volunteers raise money and awareness for the LO by hosting themed, unique dinner parties, bus trips to interesting venues and other special events throughout the community.  100% of ticket prices go to support the ALO; hosts underwrite all costs of the events.
