Churches and non-profits in the community set up tents to offer free kids activities, yard games, and raffles. The Chamber hosted live entertainment, archery tag, pony rides, chicken BBQ and Cow Pie BINGO. At the end of the night, there was a fireworks display donated by a Chamber member. While the participating non-profits and churches raised money for themselves with their individual activities, the Chamber used the proceeds from the BBQ and BINGO to establish a fund that will be reinvested back into the community through community projects and initiatives.
