WISCAP & Madison Capitols Join Together to ‘Put Poverty on Ice’
Madison, WI – WISCAP is teaming up with the Madison Capitols to “Put Poverty on Ice” at their next home game against the Central Illinois Flying Aces on Friday, October 26th at Bob Suter’s Ice Arena in Middleton.
This fundraiser takes place as the City of Middleton has declared October 26, 2018 Community Action Day. Middleton Mayor Gurdip Brar will also be on hand for the ceremonial puck drop at the start of the game. Throughout the night, educational materials on poverty in Wisconsin will be distributed and featured in video and PA announcements. WISCAP, Wisconsin’s Poverty Fighting Network, is comprised of 16 community action agencies, working across the state to address the realities of poverty and economic dislocation.
“We love the opportunity to partner with WISCAP this season 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 our sponsors and 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.
Current sponsors include Edgewood College’s School of Business, COR Program, and School of Integrative Studies, the Wisconsin Association of Taxicab Owners (WATO), and Mutual of America. If you are interested in a corporate sponsorship or a group outing with friends or employees, please call WISCAP at (608) 244-4422 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
