Restoration work on the Ridges Sanctuary Range Light in Baileys Harbor can now move toward completion thanks to a successful fundraising effort. The “Restore the Range Light” campaign raised over $305,000 since it was started in 2016 and it's completion last month. Drew Richmond, Development and Marketing Director for The Ridges, says that will allow construction crews and volunteers to put the finishing touches on restoration in time for the summer tourism season.
Last summer, gifts from the David L. and Rita E. Nelson Family Fund within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region and the Raibrook Foundation help put fundraising efforts over the top.
