The Bluebird Foundation is usually celebrating the release of their Christmas By The Lake CD, not this year.

The annual 2020 Christmas by the Lake Fundraising Gala will be taking place on Wednesday, December 2nd. So, because of COVID-19, the annual fundraiser will be virtual. There will be virtual live music at 5:30 on Wednesday, December 2nd. More on that below.

There is also a silent auction that will begin on 11/23 and go on until 12/2. If you would like to be a part of the virtual night, you will have to purchase tickets and can do so here.

When you purchase tickets you will be entertained by Adam Herman, Rickey Lee Biggs, John Seguin, Woodblind, Sydney Hansen and some more to be named later. Karlyn Nessa, who is a scholarship recipient will perform a dance.
