North Shore Bank fundraiser saves Pewaukee fireworks

PEWAUKEE (WITI) -- North Shore Bank announced Tuesday, June 18th that their fundraising goals have been exceeded, and the 2013 Pewaukee Fourth of July fireworks will go on as planned.

Previously, the Pewaukee Fireworks Committee announced the fireworks would be cancelled due to lack of funding. On Friday, June 7, North Shore Bank announced it would match any donations to the Pewaukee Fireworks Fund, up to $3,500.

North Shore Bank accepted donations at its Pewaukee branch and was able to raise over $3,500 in under two weeks with the help of residents and non-profit groups with all funds raised will go directly to the fireworks show.

One of North Shore Bank’s primary goals is to support community events, such as these fireworks. The bank is happy to have helped keep this tradition alive and is proud to serve such a caring and giving community.
