Wonder Lake Water Ski Show Team

As you may know the Wonder Lake Water Ski Show Team has been a pillar to the community for over 60 years. We provide a free, safe, and entertaining atmosphere conducive to family gatherings. Every Friday from Memorial Day to Labor Day you can catch us performing free water ski shows for the community. We also compete in Regional and National tournaments and can proudly boast 5 national championships. In this regard, we are more than just your average sports team. As a 501c3 nonprofit, we rely solely on donations and fundraising to keep the team going. This year has been filled with uncertainty and disappointment for us as it has for many. This will be the first year that we have not been able to perform and collect donations. We have also had to cancel all fundraising including our biggest of the year, The Haunted Hayride in Peterson Park.  It is with heavy hearts and our hats in our hands that we come to you in our time of need. We are very aware that Covid-19 has impacted the financial well- being of community members, but we have no choice except to reach out for help. A donation of any amount it would be greatly appreciated. The team still incurs a tremendous amount of debt throughout the year even though we have not been able to perform. Please help us keep the tradition alive by donating today and forwarding this to as many people as possible. Keep in mind, if you are unable to donate you can still support us in a major way by sharing this page.


Thank You!
