United We Chalk event brings chalk art to downtown La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Chalk artists and community members bring their creativity to downtown La Crosse. Great Rivers United Way is hosting their United We Chalk event in the Harborview Plaza parking lot.

Community members of any and all experience levels are invited to enter the all-abilities chalk art competition. The proceeds from the event will help benefit 52 local non-profit programs. Event organizers say it’s good to see so many people showing their support.

“We have many different organizations here participating, we have families that are participating, we have schools that are participating, and professional artists that are here participating as well,” said the Co-chair of the Great Rivers United Way campaign, Joe Endrizzi.

The Fundraiser doubles as a competition and community members can vote online at the Great Rivers United Way website.

Voting will remain open until Tuesday evening and winners will be announced the following day.
