First Annual Adam Burish BFH Thanksgiving Challenge
Adam just joined our Honorary Board of Directors this year. He has hit the ground running or should I say he he has hit the ice skating fast. He immediately agreed to sponsor this event at the Kohl Center during a men's hockey game. He went out and purchased items for his friends in the nation hockey league to sign and then he delivered them to Buckets. In addition, he donated two tickets to a Blackhawks National Hockey League game and a visit to the locker room after that game. He also donated a signed Hawks jersey of his own. All told, we put out twenty items for sale that night.
The event was a spectacular success as the hockey faithful of the Badgers were very generous in their bids. The total of all bids for twenty items was just over $10,000. Dr. Cenon Buancemino led the bids with a $2,000 donation for the Blackhawks ticket package and Dr. Robb Warren joined in strongly by purchasing five items for over $1,500. The grand total of revenue over expenses was just short of $8,000. This was an excellent first year and Buckets looks for this to become an annual major fund-raiser for the program.
