Put Poverty on Ice!
Madison, WI – WISCAP is teaming up with the Madison Capitols Hockey Club for the 2nd Annual “Put Poverty on Ice” night Friday, January 24, 2020 at Bob Suter’s Ice Arena in Middleton.
Throughout the game, educational materials on poverty in Wisconsin will be distributed and featured in video and PA announcements, and fans will have the opportunity to learn about WISCAP, Wisconsin’s Poverty Fighting Network.
“We love the opportunity to, once again, partner with WISCAP to help raise awareness on the issue of poverty,” said Capitols’ President Andrew Joudrey. “Working with community groups is something we are committed to as an organization.”
“We are thrilled to be hosting this event with the Capitols. More than ten percent of Wisconsinites live below the poverty line. Sports, including hockey, can serve as a great way to bring people together and draw attention to these important issues,” said WISCAP’s Executive Director Brad Paul.
WISCAP and the Capitols are actively seeking sponsorship to ensure the event is a success. Opportunities range from $250 to $1,000 and all have built in donations to WISCAP. If you are interested in a sponsorship or hosting a group outing, please contact Brad Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org or Andrew Joudrey at email@example.com.
