Editor, Times-Union:

We are so grateful for the efforts of many people, businesses and organizations who recently supported our most successful fundraising event to date, the 2022 Dance at Tippy.

Held on Saturday, July 30, our event welcomed more than 650 guests for an evening of great food, music and celebration. Grand Funk Railroad and Skyelor Anderson put on an amazing show for us! People danced, laughed and had a great time with their friends and neighbors - all in support of our efforts to prevent pollution and to facilitate cleaner, healthier lakes in the Upper Tippecanoe River Watershed.

We raised more than $73,000 to invest in projects to keep our lakes and streams clean and protected for the future. This was an incredible achievement for our 25th year.

We are especially appreciative of the support of dozens of sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees who helped make the event our very best one yet.

Thank you to our devoted, hard-working committee directed by Lisa Finch and comprised of Kristy Rumfelt, Natalie Fierek, Tess Smalley, Julie Kuhn, Linda Hinshaw, Cheryl Niles, Ruth LaSalle, Susan Laliberte, Dave & Ann Darlington, Cindi Vautaw, Tamara Drake and Paige Hubner.

Our event would not have been possible without the support of our donors, including our marquee sponsors:  CABLEBullet, Dave's Heating & Cooling, Deb Paton-Showley Group Coldwell Banker, Fire & Ice HVAC, Ryan Drake - Edward Jones, Shepherd's Chevrolet, Tripp Insurance, Barbee Lakes Property Owners Association, Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners, Main Channel Marina and Smoker Craft.
