Life Saver River Cruise

An annual event benefiting Willow Tree Cornerstone Child Advocacy Center, a program of Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin. Featuring boat cruises along the Fox River, hors d’oeuvres, and live music!


Important Update:

The safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff is of the utmost importance to us. That’s why, due to the recent spike in cases of COVID-19, we’ve made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 Life Saver River Cruise.

Even though the event will not take place, we still plan to celebrate and support Willow Tree and the children we serve on Wednesday, August 12th! With your help, we’ll still raise critical funds for Willow Tree to ensure that abused and neglected children can become safe, begin to heal, and build a bright future.
