BOSCOBEL, WI (WTAQ) - A fundraiser was held during the weekend to help around 600 residents and business owners in Boscobel.
That’s where 13 inches of rain flooded the community on the weekend of June 22nd and 23rd.
The Chamber of Commerce arranged the event – which included auctions, games, live music, and more. The proceeds are being placed into a fund to help families who need it.
The Boscobel Chamber has also set up a PayPal account for those who wish to give online.
Federal disaster relief is being considered for Boscobel and other places in the western half of Wisconsin – but the aid would not cover individual homes, only public amenities of roads and bridges that were damaged by the flood waters.
