New Fundraiser Hopes to Become Regional Tradition
Erie Arts & Culture and Presque Isle Partnership Launch the Great Lake Ice Break
In 2019, Erie Arts & Culture and the Presque Isle Partnership developed a collaborative fundraiser modeled after an Alaskan tradition that’s occurred annually since 1917. Unfortunately, winter conditions in 2019 and 2020 didn’t prove favorable for the fundraiser and plans sat on ice until 2021. With formal permission received from the Erie Western Pennsylvania Port Authority, the two non-profit organizations will finally have an opportunity to test the merits of the innovative fundraiser to determine if it has what it takes to become an annual tradition for the region.
