Cruise Geneva Lake, aid local charities
Lake Geneva's Cornerstone Shop and Gallery is hosting a cruise and tour of the historic Black Point Mansion on Sunday, Sept. 15, to benefit the Walworth County Alliance for Children and Open Arms Free Clinic.
Tickets are $125 per person and includes light refreshments and hors d'oeuvres aboard Lake Geneva Cruise Line's steam yacht, Louise, followed by a tour of the Black Point Estate, one of 56 homes featured in Glenn Hettinger's “Distinctive Homes of America: Vol. IV — Lake Geneva.” The cruise departs at 3:30 p.m. from the Riviera Docks and returns at 6 p.m.
“We strive to give back to the local community and were planning a special event in conjunction with Glenn Hettinger's book release,” said Karin Bennett, owner of the Cornerstone Shop and Gallery. “We decided to host a fundraiser to celebrate the special work of these two organizations.”
The Walworth County Alliance for Children is dedicated to the belief that all children are entitled to a life free of violence, abuse and neglect. The alliance recently opened the Tree House, home of the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Walworth County Advocacy Center.
The Open Arms Free Clinic's all-volunteer staff of medical doctors, nurses, counselors, pharmacists and pharmacy assistants provides direct patient care to uninsured, low-income and under-served residents of Walworth County.
Ticket sales are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit:
