Two community organizations helping to feed the hungry were recent recipients of donations from Making Spirits Bright, Inc. On April 2, Gerry Plehn, President of the Making Spirits Bright Board of Directors, presented a check for $5,000 to Eric Zufelt, Sheboygan County Food Bank board president, and another check for $1,000 to Gerry Van de Kreeke, President of the Board for Meals on Wheels of Sheboygan County.

“The Making Spirits Bright holiday light show had an outstanding event last year,” said Plehn. “More than 20,600 cars passed through the gates of Evergreen Park, more than 35 ton of pantry items were generously donated for the Sheboygan County Food Bank, and we received substantial cash donations during the 29-night event. So on behalf of the Rotary Clubs of Sheboygan, we are very pleased to make these donations to two deserving local charities,” says Plehn.
In her presentation to the two groups, Plehn also thanked the event’s Premier sponsors---Festival Foods and Dave and Sandy Sachse---as well as many other returning and new donors and volunteers who helped make the light show a success. Fundraising for this year’s event has begun and committees are already underway to design and create new displays for the Evergreen Park route and plan additional activities. The 2015 light show will open on Friday, November 27.
Volunteers are welcome to join the various Making Spirits Bright committees which organize the show. If interested, contact Gerry Plehn at 920-457-3637.
