The Summer Kick Off continued today in downtown Wausau. The Good News Project hosted a Caribbean market on the 400 Block.
Hundreds came out to enjoy live music and Cuban food. This is the non-profit organization's first year hosting the event. They're hoping to raise money for service projects they do oversees in the West Indies.
Marie Keiffer, owner of Verve Salon and Headbands, was there braiding hair and selling headbands to help raise money for the Good News Project.
"I really love everything that Wausau represents," said Keiffer, "So anytime that my business can be apart of a community event, we're there."
The Good News Project has been in Wausau for 31 years now. The organization travels to the Caribbean every year to help build homes, and provide dental and medical work for the less fortunate.
Wausau's Summer Kick Off continues tomorrow with a classic car showcase on the 400 Block. That event starts at 9 a.m.
