The fourth annual Canoes for a Cause event is back in 2019 and is slated for Saturday, June 15. Gilligans will once again host the annual fundraiser, which will run from 12–4 p.m.
It will be a day of adult and kids’ games, prizes and fun to support the Chetek Lakes Protection Association’s lake skimmer project.
The event will feature a golf chipping contest with prizes sponsored by Sioux Creek Golf Course, along with a meat raffle, Leinenkugel raffle prizes, a variety of door prizes, a 50/50 raffle and much more.
The top raffle prizes will once again be $1,000 for first place and a Leinenkugel backyard package for second place. The third-place raffle prize is one dinner per month for a year at Gilligans, fourth place is one dinner per month for a year at Red’s Eating & Drinking Establishment and fifth place is a Leinenkugel paddle.
Roughly 500–600 people attended last year’s event, which raised nearly $5,000.
