Taking a Stand: Head to the Fall Fest

By Vice-President/General Manager Debbie Bush

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Hundreds of thousands of dollars will be made this week for local charities and organizations.

It's time to once again. visit the annual West Side Nut Club Fall Festival.

This year the festival continues its excellence with more than 125 booths willing to sell you the usual, and the not so usual, foods!

The midway is still a bargain.

With the purchase of a $15 wristband you can get unlimited rides!

The weather has been challenging this week but we would urge everyone to grab the umbrella or raincoat!

For many, this is a huge fundraiser!

The organizations each will make somewhere between a $1,000 all the way up to $20,000!

It's estimated that the West Side Nut Club has donated more than $4 million from the event over the years!

Personally, this is my third fall festival and my first to volunteer for several organizations.

It's been a wonderful and rewarding experience.

So our stand, keep an eye on our radar and go to the fall festival.

For every dollar you spend, you will be helping our community!
