Tavern League of Wisconsin member-businesses are gathering places for many communities throughout Wisconsin. “When these hardworking tavern owners join forces with their customers to support good causes, the results are incredible,” says Tavern League of Wisconsin Executive Director Pete Madland.
This community-minded spirit is evident in a report just released by the Tavern League. It shows members overall donated more than $12 million to 15,000 charities in 2017. The list of fundraising events is long, and the beneficiaries are organizations as varied as the American Cancer Society, Fisher House Wisconsin, Special Olympics, United Way, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, or local entities such as community food pantries, clothing drives, domestic violence awareness programs, families battling illness or those recovering from accidents.
