Geneva Lake is a mecca for those loving water sports, but our short Wisconsin summers leave many longing for more time on the water. Well, last Saturday afternoon dozens of hearty souls got their wish to tube, surf, water-ski and wakeboard as they braved the chilly waters of Geneva Lake for Gage Marine’s Freezin for a Reason event. Those participating solicited sponsorship pledges from businesses, family and friends as a fundraiser for Santa Cause, which is a “super charity,” supporting “The 12 Charities of Christmas” in Walworth County. Some of the benefactors include Walworth County Alliance for Children, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lake Geneva, Agape House, Walworth County Food Pantry, and Open Arms Free Clinic. Those participating as well as their fans enjoyed a bit of summertime, while helping out those in need. Bravo!
