WOW – WE CARE CHARITY raised more than $28K at its third annual Barn Bash fundraiser, which was held on Friday, October 19 at Tryba’s Simply Country Barn in Freedom, WI. The charity fundraiser was held in support of Rise Together, a non-profit organization founded by recovering addicts that speaks to, educates, and creates support groups for youth struggling with substance abuse, mental illness, suicide, and bullying. Rise Together works with students nationwide, while maintaining a strong presence throughout the Fox Valley.
This year was the second year that WOW – WE CARE CHARITY chose Rise Together to benefit from its Barn Bash fundraiser. A country-themed event, the Barn Bash features delicious BBQ, a silent auction, live music, and a popular sing-off competition with WOW Logistics VP of Sales, Jamie Wally, and a special guest singer.
The Barn Bash has continued to grow in its three-year history with this year’s event being the most successful. The Barn Bash drew more than 150 guests from throughout the state and—thanks to the generosity of WOW Logistics’ vendors, clients, business partners, and members of the community—WOW – WE CARE CHARITY was able to raise nearly triple the proceeds from the 2017 fundraiser.
“We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of our fellow business partners, community members, and employees,” said Tim Lisowe, President of WOW – WE CARE CHARITY. “We are looking forward to presenting Rise Together with almost triple the amount that we were able to raise last year, as well as witnessing the positive impact that Rise Together will continue to have on our surrounding communities.”
