Summerfest is pleased to announce the continuation of its partnership with
Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) through its Kohl’s Cares® program with
the return of the Kohl’s Captivation Station and Kohl’s Family Day to

offered educational, fun art and music experiences for children of all ages
and their families, as well as the opportunity for patrons to gain free

donations for Hunger Task Force over the years and will once again support the
organization.

the festival on Kohl’s Family Day,” said Bevin Bailis, Kohl’s senior vice
