Four candidates have tossed their hats in the ring for the annual Englewood Pioneer Days Mayor for a Day fundraiser.  These wonderful caring citizens have volunteered to spend their own time in the heat of the summer campaigning to raise funds for their local charities.  They all deserve your support and admiration.  Remember, each dollar they collect counts as one “vote” and 100% of all funds will be donated to their charities.  The new Mayor will be announced Saturday September 3, 2022 at the Opening of the 3 Day Festival. The winner will  ride in the Pioneer Days Parade on Labor Day Monday and announce the Trophy winners at 1pm. 

You can donate to any or all of the candidates and there is no limit as to how much you can give.  Every one of these charities is supporting our local community and providing services to those in need.  They are protecting our families and children and deserve everyone’s support.  Please show how generous the summertime residents of Englewood can be.

Please click on their photos to learn more about them and the charities that they have chosen to support.
