(Atlantic, Iowa) – Members of the Atlantic ®RAGBRAI committee were presented with a $50,000 check at the RAGBRAI Overnight Community Meeting Thursday, March 7th.

“RAGBRAI is generously investing $50,000 in each overnight community this year to help alleviate event expenses and to help show their gratitude to each host community. We’re grateful for their partnership and look forward to using the funds to create the hospitable experience RAGBRAI goers have come to love when visiting Atlantic,” Bailey Smith, Atlantic RAGBRAI Exec Chair stated.

Atlantic last hosted in 2019, welcoming just under 20,000 people to town. The committee raised a record $50,000 that was divided between the Atlantic Police Department, Atlantic Volunteer Fire Department, Atlantic School Booster Club and Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce. Smith is looking forward to having another record year.

“RAGBRAI gives Atlantic a lot of positive exposure while supporting local organizations and non-profits. A lot of work goes into planning the event, and we’re eager to get the ball rolling with our 20 committee chairs and their committee members,” Smith stated.

The official Atlantic RAGBRAI website, www.atlanticragbrai.com, was launched by NISHNANET and is live now for individuals looking for information regarding housing, vending and volunteer opportunities.
