Black Hills Power would like to announce a new event that will be held at
the Main Street Square on Saturday, February 18 from 3 pm to 5 pm. The
event is called Walk For Warmth. It will involve the Rapid City downtown
area and partners from Rapid City Downtown Association, Main Street
Square, RC Chamber of Commerce, Church Response, Salvation Army and Red
Cross. Media partners include New Rushmore Radio, Rapid City Journal, VIA
Media and KNBN.
The annual Walk For Warmth event is BHP's kick-off for our Black Hills
Cares Program which is designed to raise much needed funds to support
people in need for energy assistance such as paying for their energy bill
and weatherization measures throughout the Black Hills area. Through
Black Hills Cares, The Salvation Army and Church Response will administer
the funds. The event is a walk which involves people registering and
paying $10 per person or $20 per family. As part of BHP commitment to
supporting this event, BHP will match all donations up to $10,000.
