By Lori Johnson
It’s a special group of people who work so hard to benefit others, especially during these uncertain times.
On May 23rd from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. some 653 people were served delicious brats and hot dogs delivered right to their cars by members of the Hixton Fire Department, 63 cars were washed and $3,600 raised from free will donations.
With each free will donation, one could nominate a deserving area business and 45 businesses were named…
Of all the nominations, three lucky businesses were chosen in drawing to receive a third of the total proceeds…
Yes, That constitutes a successful fundraiser!
A check for $1,200 was awarded to the winners - Meraki Salon & Tanning - Alma Center,
Wright Place Saloon - Black River Falls, and Cobblestone Cottage Antiques - Hixton.
Hixton Fire Chief Tom Davidson described the event’s result as “Phenomenal! and expressed appreciation to everyone who supported us throughout this event!
