Rotarians Thank All for a Record Setting “Making Spirits Bright.
We wish to pay tribute to so many who made our seventh year a huge success. We had a record setting 24,783 vehicles visit the park and Sheboygan County Food Pantry donations totaled 100,451 pounds.
Our heart-felt thanks to our loyal sponsors. The Grover Family Foundation and Brenda Potter at the $10,000 level are our Premier Sponsors. We would also like to thank those at the $5000 tier including Festival Foods, Rockline Industries, Frank G and Frieda K Brotz Family Foundation, Masters Gallery Foods and Curt G Joa as well as many others who helped us exceed our $70,000 goal.
Additionally, thanks to over 1400 volunteers without whose assistance in many different facets we would not be able to provide this event, some in severe weather conditions. Thanks to those who visited the park providing much needed pantry items as well as cash donations that allow us to maintain and grow the lights display and our Quarry activities. Thanks also to over 60 In Kind donors, providing free or discounted services.
Last, but certainly not least, a huge thanks to our Steering Committees for their selfless time and effort all year long to ensure each year becomes a better experience.
Anyone interested in becoming involved, please Click Here to volunteer.
Gerry Plehn, Making Spirits Bright
Steering Committee Chair
Across the county, from Sheboygan to Random Lake to Plymouth and Sheboygan Falls, the food pantries, staffed by volunteers and operated by organizations such as Sheboygan County Food Bank and numerous churches, are vital to helping feed our families in need.
We need your help in 2018! There are many ways that individuals and companies can help Making Spirits Bright create another memorable and giving holiday season. We look forward to hearing from you.
Making Spirits Bright continues to grow thanks to our generous sponsors. We are still looking for companies in Sheboygan County who would like to sponsor a holiday program that gives back. We have collected over 200,000 lbs. of pantry items for the Sheboygan County food pantries since 2012.
