Winterhaven community positive about holiday fund raising

Posted: Updated:

The community of Winterhaven is still working on raising money to keep the Festival of Lights holiday celebration going.

So far Winterhaven has received $15,000-$17,000 in checks donations and verbal committments.

They're also talking to major sponsors.  Chick-fil-a is running a promotion October 15 in which a percentage of its sales will go to the festival.

Winterhaven folks are fairly confident they'll reach enough money to hold the festival without the city's help.
