Hello Friends of Lake Wausau,We’re excited about holding our 9th Annual Fundraiser event on Friday, May 21, 2021 at the Rothschild Pavilion from 6pm – 10pm.

Tickets for this year’s event are still available by contacting us via email at or by contacting the following board/committee members:
• Holly Kohl
• Rick Parkin
• Jim Wagner

We know 2020 was certainly a challenging and unprecedented year for everyone and we’re proceeding with caution to reconnect lake friends at this year’s event to kick off the start of the 2021 summer season!

To comply with certain recommended COVID-19 guidelines, we are limiting the number of attendees at this year’s event to ensure the ability to exercise appropriate physical distancing and, therefore, we’re only selling 300 tickets to this year’s event (as opposed to our usual 400 tickets). In addition, seating at tables will be limited to a maximum of six people. Other recommended guidelines may be published on our website ( and our Facebook page (Friends of Lake Wausau) prior to the event as the pandemic continues to unfold and conditions continue to change.

Should pandemic conditions worsen resulting in increased risk or there are legislative changes preventing an in-person gathering, we will move forward to hold a virtual cash drawing. We’re hopeful we can all safely gather to celebrate what Lake Wausau means to all of us… especially during these pandemic times when our social and recreational activities have been so limited!

Tickets for admission to the fundraiser and raffle 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… need not be present to win cash prizes), catered food, beverages (beer | wine | soda), and fun games, raffles, and auctions all night long.

Proceeds from our fundraising event will fund Lake Wausau improvements and management efforts… and we have a number of projects in the works for 2021.

Come connect with us and learn about what’s happening on Lake Wausau! We hope you’ll continue to be a part of our efforts to preserve this natural resource for the benefit of our entire community.

So save the date and get your tickets now while they last (they are selling quickly!). If you’ve already purchased tickets we appreciate your support! We look forward to connecting with everyone at this fun social event!
