This is a fundraiser with the proceeds going to benefit Door County "Secret Santa" during the holidays. Their mission is to provide the essentials to needy families who are struggling at Christmastime.
Last year they raised enough money through your generosity to help 11 families in Door County. They hope to help many more this year.
