RIB MOUNTAIN, Wis. (WAOW) -- LIFT gym in Rib Mountain is preparing to host its second annual "Up-LIFT" Red Carpet event.

Ticket holders will get to walk the red carpet, have professional photos taken, food and drinks will be provided, along with a DJ for music.

All of the fun will of course be for a good cause.

"The idea stemmed from us just trying to give back to the community," LIFT Co-Owner Brook Haakenson said. "So the event is unique in the fact that the community members can actually nominate a family since they know who needs the help the most."

Three families will be selected out of the nominees to receive an even portion of the total funds raised from the event.

"Up-Lift" will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn at 7pm on February 15.

Last year's event raised around $12,000, and Haakenson said she hopes to exceed that this year to ensure that families in need are taken care of.

If you would like to purchase a ticket you can visit the LIFT gym location in Rib Mountain.
