Liv to Give got its start in 2007 as “Kevin Morsching Day,” an event held to honor a young man named Kevin who lost his life after a tragic accident. The benefit raised over $30,000 for the family. The giving continues to this day, with recurring donations made to the Arete Foundation in memory of Kevin Morsching and the Scott Grimsrud Scholarship: an award started in 2009 to honor Scott Grimsrud, a friend of the organization and inspiration to many in the community. That same year, the Liv to Give Fund was established as a component fund of the Black Hills Area Community Foundation (BHACF). In just five years, Liv To Give has contributed more than $200,000 to worthy, non-profit causes in our area.
Once a year, WaTiki Indoor Waterpark—along with Fairfield Inn & Suites, La Quinta Inn & Suites, Sliders Bar (and now our newest family member, Marco’s Pizza at WaTiki)—hosts a daylong fundraiser. All proceeds made at all five properties for the entire day are donated to local non-profit organizations.
For 2017’s event, Liv to Give will take place on Saturday, April 22. Make plans to join us at WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort as all proceeds will be donated to worthy, non-profit causes in our area. To make a reservation, call 866.WaTiki.Fun or visit watikiwaterpark.com.
