After the conclusion of the Downtown Effingham Summer Food Fest, the Effingham Central Business Group has made a donation to the Harmony Playground.
The Summer Food Fest is an annual event organized by the Effingham Central Business Group where local businesses set up shop in downtown Effingham to chat with residents. The event featured food vendors, live music, and kids activities.
Additionally, each year the Central Business Group selects local charities to support with proceeds from the event. This year, they raised $1980.50 for Harmony Playground, a playground that will be entirely ADA accessible. The project is still in the fund raising stages, but once the playground is built it will be maintained by the Effinham Park District.
