On Saturday, January 14, 2017 Altenburg’s Farm is holding a winter sleigh ride event from 10am to 4pm, with the proceeds benefiting United Way of Inner Wisconsin. The event includes a heated waiting room inside Wiggins Green house, hot chocolate and chili for sale, and an outdoor bonfire for participants
to enjoy. Each sleigh accommodates large groups and each ride is about one mile long.
Tickets for the event are $5.00 per person or $20.00 for a family of five or more. River Cities Bank is matching the event proceeds up to $250. Also, the Olympic II Family Restaurant is donating the chili and Gracie’s Family Restaurant is donating the hot cocoa.
Altenburg’s Farm is located at 7020 Plover Road (Hwy 54E), Wisconsin Rapids. It is three miles east of Wisconsin Rapids and ten miles west of Plover.
“We are excited to partner with Altenburg’s on this event,” said Tari Jahns, United Way of Inner Wisconsin’s CEO. “It’s a perfect opportunity for families to spend quality time and enjoy the outdoors at wintertime. And the proceeds will support programs in south Wood County that help families and individuals in need.”
Harold Altenburg is excited to help United Way. “Its people helping people,” he said.
Volunteers are also needed to assist with greeting, standing in front of the horses while people are loading and unloading, cleaning tables, serving chili and hot cocoa and supervising the bonfire.
