Each summer, the Lake City Chamber of Commerce organizes the fundraiser for the annual fireworks display that is seen over beautiful Lake Pepin on the 4th of July.
Due to the unforseen circumstances that COVID-19 has brought to our community, the Chamber has had to postpone and/or cancel a number of events that we all love so much. Because of these disruptions in the normal calander of events we feel having something we can look forward to and celebrate, like the 4th, would be meaningful to our community.
Due to the financial hardships many of our usual donors are facing and the lack of usual public fundraising efforts as a result of businesses being closed, the fundraising for the Fireworks has been minimal. Having the firworks display for the 4th of July this year is something the Chamber of Commerce knows can still be done safely, while also securing a display our community looks forward to each summer.
The community needs to reach a goal of $12,000 for the standard annual fireworks display. Isn't it crazy how much fireworks can cost?? Woofta! So far, the Chamber has fundraised $4,000, but still have $8,000 more to go! Contributions of any amount are welcome and appreciated. If you or your business are interested in sponsoring the fireworks display with a larger contribution (also includes recognition), reach out to Samantha Schamaun at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651.345.4123.
