WUCA Raises Funds for Make-A-Wish Wisconsin
DELAFIELD, WI Since it was founded in 1984, through the efforts of the Wisconsin chapter of Make-A-Wish, more than 6,000 children and their families throughout the state have experienced the transformative power of a wish. But there is still more work to be done. More than 500 Wisconsin children will be diagnosed this year alone with a medical condition, qualifying them for a wish.
The Wisconsin Underground Contractors Association (WUCA) and its members once again rose to the occasion with their annual charitable fundraiser to benefit Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. This year it was held at the Rustic Manor 1848 in Delafield, Wisconsin and it was a huge success. WUCA members and their families filled the venue both downstairs and upstairs, enjoying hors d'oeuvres, a whiskey tasting station, the music of the Jackson Park Big Band, a delicious dinner and the company of fellow members. A silent auction and a live auction were both held, raising money for Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. Donations of sporting event tickets, construction equipment, camping gear, and just about anything you could imagine went to the highest bidder in order to raise money.
WUCA Executive Director Robert J. Bartel, WUCA President Pat Wunsch of Musson Brothers, Inc. and Patti Gorsky, President & CEO of Make-A-Wish Wisconsin were all on hand to welcome guests and help with the event.
For over twenty years WUCA has raised more than $700,000 for Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, money that could not have been raised without the support of the full WUCA membership. This year, WUCA was able to raise more than $20,000 for the organization.
