North Shore Bank begins drive to save Pewaukee fireworks

PEWAUKEE (WITI) -- North Shore Bank is doing what it can to help preserve the 2013 Fourth of July fireworks in Pewaukee.

On Monday, June 10th, North Shore Bank announced it will match any donations made at the bank by individuals or non‐profit organizations to the Pewaukee Fireworks Fund, up to $3,500.

According to a Village of Pewaukee statement this week, firework organizers had hoped to raise $11,000 for this year’s show, and were forced to cancel the event when donations only amounted to $4,000.

Donations to the Pewaukee Fireworks Fund can be made at North Shore Bank’s Pewaukee branch – 120 W. Wisconsin Ave. – beginning Monday and running through Monday, June 17. If the goal of $3,500 is not reached by that time, North Shore Bank will make a donation of $1,000 to the fund for the 2014 fireworks show.
