Save the Date - LWA's 5th Annual Fundraiser on 4/21/17

LWA will hold it's 5th Annual Fundraising event on Friday, April 21, 2017 at the Rothschild Pavilion from 6pm - 10pm. Proceeds from the event go toward Lake Wausau improvements and management efforts. LWA continues to work diligently with the WI DNR, UW Stevens Point Water Science Specialists, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Wisconsin River Alliance, local municipalities, and other neighboring groups to improve the conditions of Lake Wausau and the Wisconsin River System. We have made strong partnerships and great strides in our efforts to protect, maintain, and enhance Lake Wausau since reformation of the Organization in 2011. We are passionate about progressing the recreational, social, environmental, economic, and aesthetic values of Lake Wausau as a means to cultivating quality of life for members and prospective members of our community.

Tickets for admission to the fundraiser are $50 per person and include entry into cash prize drawings (1st place - $2,500, 2nd place - $1,000, 3rd place - $500, 4th place - $300, 5th place - $200), a buffet style dinner catered by Gulliver's Landing, beverages (beer | wine | soda), and fun games and raffles all night long, as well as a live auction. Only 400 tickets will be sold! Tickets are available by contacting us via email at or by contacting one of the following committee members (call or text):

We look forward to seeing you there!

Note: We are also seeking volunteers to assist during the event for brief shifts, as well as seeking auction item donations. Volunteers do not require a ticket into the event; however, they would not be included in the cash prize drawing as tickets are required for the raffle.

Please contact us by email at if you're interested in volunteering or donating items or services.
