About Community Invested Inc.
Community Invested Inc was formed in June 2018 to pick up the fundraising efforts of what was formerly “Freeport Sky Concert”
We are looking for ways to be involved in the communities which surround us. We enjoy interacting with the people and businesses in our communities and getting to know one another. We have decided to host Light the Night Freedom Fest each year to celebrate our Independence. Our goal is to bring families and friends together to have fun and honor America.
Every year we will host numerous mini events which will lead up to our main event. These mini events will act not only as fundraising efforts, but also as additional opportunities to bring our communities together in a positive way.
We hope you will consider supporting our efforts. If you would like more information about this event, our mini events, fundraising events, sponsorship opportunities and more please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
