Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (August 18, 2020) – It is with heavy heart that Sunshine Resources has decided to cancel our annual Sunflower Fest that was scheduled to take place on September 12 in Martin Park, Sturgeon Bay. Of course, the safety and well-being of all possible attendees has always been at the forefront of our planning and we could not find a way to provide that at this time.
“We will all miss enjoying a day at Martin Park listening and dancing to great music, shopping from the Bake Sale, bidding on the silent auction items and spending time with our clients, staff and the entire Door County community,” said Randy Morrow, CEO of Sunshine Resources of Door County.
This end-of-the-summer event celebrates all abilities in Door County. Sunshine Resources, previously Sunshine House, has helped to empower individuals with disabilities and special needs for nearly 50 years, and we hope to share that legacy and our story for many years to come.
“Sunflower Fest will be back in September 2021,” Morrow explained. As our main fundraising event of the year, generating more than $40,000, no doubt we will feel the financial impact, but no matter that loss, none of that could make up for everyone’s safety. This is an important event not only for our clients but Sunshine Resources as a whole. We rely on proceeds from this fundraiser, and like many other organizations, we are all living in a challenging time.
