Please Make A Donation Today To Help Support S-D Area Business Association's Free Fun Events
The Saugatuck-Douglas Area Business Association (S-D ABA) will be holding various fundraisers through the year to help raise money for new and exciting events for locals and visitors to enjoy and to help bring new customers to - and promote - local businesses.
The newly energized organization led by President Jim Petzing and Marketing Director Elizabeth Burns want to make donation giving easy, simple and fun for everyone and will now be using state-of-the-art mobile pledging as a key fundraising tool.
All money raised through these fundraising efforts will be used by the organization as part of a “Fun Fund” to promote these special, community wide events in Saugatuck and Douglas.
To kick-off its new fundraising campaign, S-D ABA is asking locals and visitors alike to help support its summertime, weekly event, “Music In The Park” which provides free musical entertainment of various genres each Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. at Wick’s Park Gazebo on Water Street in downtown Saugatuck.
“We’re asking everyone to help support us so we can continue to sponsor these wonderful, free events that everyone enjoys!” says Petzing.
“A donation large or small will be used solely to help us pay for these special events,” adds Burns.
