Record setting night for Share Your Holidays (in July)
Concert-goers to Wausau's Concert on the Square Wednesday night donated $1664 to Share Your Holidays in July. With the $2500 grant from Ho Chunk Gaming, the total comes to $4164 for the Salvation Army and Neighbors' Place food pantries. That's more than the first two years of the event combined.
NewsChannel 7 and WZAW staff members rang Salvation Army bells at all four corners of the 400 Block, where the concerts are held.
This is the first year for Ho Chunk Gaming's involvement. They were the sponsor of the concert for the night.
Share Your Holidays will return at it's regular time in December. In it's first 15-years, it's raised more then $618,000 all going to the two food pantries.
From everyone at NewsChannel 7 and WZAW, thank you for sharing your holidays in July!
