The Chippewa Lake Lions Club provided almost $40,000 for charitable community needs in 2020. Many of the funds came from the Polar Bear Jump held in January 2020 at Chippewa Lake. Sadly, this 10 year event had to be cancelled for 2021 due to COVID. However, we are delighted to announce a replacement  virtual event “WHERE’S CHIPPY?,” a fun raffle experience,  as we search for our mascot polar bear, Chippy and encourage him, through sponsorships and ticket sales, to take the “plunge” and save the event! The actual event & ticket sales will be launched in March over a two week period. There will be a live webinar for the exciting final event on March 27.  Partnering with the Lions this year will be CrossPointe Community Church and The Society. We are requesting Event Sponsorships during the month of February. All Sponsors will be able to benefit from increased exposure during a two week event, rather than an event lasting only a few hours. Help us find replacement funds to support the community by sponsoring this event. Now a 501 ( c )(3) Foundation, all contributions are tax deductible.
