DE PERE -- Celebrate De Pere is celebrating nonprofits in the area.
Tonight, they donated over $80,000 to more than 40 nonprofit groups including Freedom House and several local VFWs. Organizers with the Memorial Day celebration say they're honored to be able to help so much every year.
"It's huge. We plan this event year-round and it's all for this right here. Today is kind of what we spend all year doing. The three days at the festival are just kind of the main act," says Mark Hubert with Celebrate Committe, Inc.
Celebrate De Pere's board of directors were awarded the 2012 Patriot Award by the Desert Veterans of Wisconsin tonight for their work.
