CANOES FOR A CAUSE ECO-HARVESTER FUNDRAISING EVENT SUMMARY - August 27, 2016
Thank you to all who attended or volunteered at the Canoe's for a Cause event this past weekend at Gilligan's. The CLPA raised between $9,000 and $10,000 from the event to go towards the Eco-Harvester fund to help pay for operating and maintenance costs of the Eco-Harvester purchased earlier this year. Large support from local businesses and community members made this event a success. We had many CLPA members either attend or volunteer for the event even through the brief rain we had. The Eco-Harvester was present and we had a few of the volunteer drivers out explaining how it worked and showing the areas that have been skimmed so far.
The Chetek Lakes Protection Association (CLPA) would like to thank:
The sponsors for Canoes for a Cause – Lienenkugel, Gilligans, Erb Bus Service, Chetek Lutheran Church, Jiffy Biffy, Jensen’s Rent A Tent, Sweetwater Sanitation, Dairyland Insurance Agency, Rod & Gun Sport Shop, Chetek Chamber.
We would also like to thank those that donated raffle prizes- Lienenkugel, Gilligans, Red’s, Sysco, Reinhart, Johnson Brothers Liquor, Coot’s Unlimited Lodge, and Sweetwater Sanitation.
A BIG thank you to the volunteers and those of you that came out to support The CLPA and the Lake Skimmer. It was a very successful day! We are planning on making this an annual event to help support the ongoing costs of the Eco-Harvester so look for the date sometime in August 2017!
