Volunteers Raising Money to Benefit Our Local Community! From a community meeting in 1989 to this year’s event, the Three Rivers Festival has generated over $900,000 for community programs and services in the Channahon area. These dollars come from the generous support of our corporate sponsors and those attending the Festival. Money raised is directly reinvested in the community, with the majority of the proceeds equally received by the Festival’s sponsoring organizations: Channahon Pony Baseball, Channahon Lions Club, Channahon Fire Department, and Chanooka Braves Youth Football. Three Rivers Festival Committee A volunteer committee of community organizations and residents produces the Three Rivers Festival.
