TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce was among more than 120 Wisconsin organizations that received funding as part of the Destination Marketing Organization Grant Program.
Governor Tony Evers, on Thursday, Nov. 11, announced that $15 million would be allocated to tourism entities around the state.
The Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce was the recipient of $51,200.00.
Chamber Executive Director Sherry Hulett said the Chamber is “thrilled” to receive the funding.
“The funds will increase the Chamber’s ability to create, promote and distribute visitor guides to more areas outside of our region,” Hulett stated. “We will have the added ability to promote events, such as Fall Ride, the Arts & Crafts Fair, and Taste of Tomahawk, to name a few, to a much broader market with the goal of increasing awareness of the Tomahawk area and all that we offer throughout the year.”
Other local grant recipients included the Langlade County Economic Development Corporation, the Antigo/Langlade County Chamber of Commerce, Eagle River Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center, Inc., Vilas County Tourism & Publicity, the Park Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, the Phillips Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce.
