Warm weather sparks safety concern in Dubuque organization fundraiser

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

A non-profit organization in Dubuque changed up its fundraiser due to warm weather and safety concerns.

St. Mark Community Center originally planned on having ice golf as its fundraiser. However, warm weather caused concern over thin ice.

Now, the event will follow the theme of a Hawaiian luau.

The fundraiser is Saturday, Feb. 11 at 11 a.m. at Midtown Marina in East Dubuque, Ill. It will include both indoor and outdoor activities, such as bean bags, euchre and a golf chipping contest.

St. Mark Community Center will take donations at the door. All proceeds will benefit the center's before- and after school programs.

Anybody is welcome to attend. Other money-raising opportunities include a raffle.

The fundraiser will continue through that Saturday evening.
