TLA Events

All our social events are meant to promote camaraderie amongst lake property owners and their families in hopes that it will advocate donations for the good of our lake.  We urge you to participate in one or all events as they really are a great time. Mark your calendars early, you don’t want to miss these opportunities. Questions or suggestions for any of the events contact Event Committee Chair Person Margo Oppenheim at mmoppy@deerrunstone.com or 715-614-3722.

Jazzy Jaunt

It’s TLA’s newest bi-annual event! Jazzy Jaunt is a boat parade to have fun while helping to raise additional funds to help keep Tomahawk Lake the outstanding resource water for years to come.
This year’s parade theme is “SUNFLOWERS”. Sunflower Bay was named for Ella Woodzika’s sunflowers, first planted in 1890. Ella and her husband, Roman (namesake of Roman’s Point), began taking in lodgers at the Sun Flower Cottage Resort in 1895. Their son, Fabian, established a boat workshop on the family property and then built a large factory in 1924. The Sunflower Boat Works was born where humble rowboats to the fine, speedy, mahogany launch, “the Sunflower Craft”, were built. Sunflower Bay is on the Lake Tomahawk southeast side of the lake just around Roman’s Point before you enter Little Lake Tomahawk. (See Map.)

Let us gather in Sunflower Bay at 2:40 pm on Saturday, August 7, 2021 for our excursion from 3:00-4:30 pm, with our decorated boats in sunflower colors and tour our neighbors from the entrance to Little Lake Tomahawk in Sunflower Bay past the Lake Tomahawk boat landing and along the north shoreline to Kemp Woods to view their decorated yard, deck, and/or dock. Bring your own beverages and snacks to enjoy as we support TLA together. You will receive a route map with approximate arrival times at different points around the lake to help spectators know when to wave to us.

The minimum registration fee is $50 for boat and shore participants and includes a Tomahawk Lake Association, Tomahawk Lake Proud Sherpa-Fleece blanket. Other levels of donations are included on the registration form as well. Even if you cannot participate, donations are welcome and you will also receive a fleece blanket if you register by Saturday, July 31, 2021.

Registration Form

Rain Date: In case of inclement weather, the Jazzy Jaunt will be held on Sunday, August 8, from 12:00-1:30 pm, meeting in Sunflower Bay at 11:40 am. Keep an eye on the TLA Facebook page for updates.

Sip & Bid Silent Auction

We are excited to announce that the Sip & Bid will feature wine, beer, hard liquor and hors de ‘oeuvres as it seemed to go over very well in 2019. Our tasty appetizers will again be handled by Julie and Andrew of Julie Kay’s Catering. John & Kim Griffin have graciously offered their home at 8197 Blue Jay Road in Lake Tomahawk for this event on Sunday, August 29th, from 4-7 p.m. The cost of the event will be $60 per person. This increase is due to an increase in the catering and refreshment prices.

There will be a silent auction to help raise funds for TLA to help with AIS control and shoreline restoration. This is a fun way to raise money… while out bidding and socializing with your neighbors! If you have an item you wish to donate for the silent auction, please contact Nancy Olson at 414-915-4062 or witaco@aol.com. Help us to find some different items this year, dig through your collectibles and see if there isn’t something worth donating and bidding on. We’ll have something for everyone so please bring your checkbook to support TLA in this annual fund-raiser.

To reserve your spot at this event, please register online (payment information on registration form).

Please mark your checks with Sip & Bid on the memo line. If you would like help with directions contact Kim Griffin at 815-494-4291. Valet Parking will be available, as parking is limited. This has turned into such a casual, relaxed, laid-back, friendly event with plenty of delicious food and fun items to bid on. We hope to see many of you there again, as well as those of you who have never attended, as we look forward to mingling with our Tomahawk Lake neighbors.
