MIDDLETON, WI – The Madison Capitols are helping end poverty in Wisconsin by partnering with WISCAP for the second year in a row during the “Put Poverty On Ice” night Friday, January 24, 2020.
A variety of educational materials on poverty will be distributed and featured in video and PA announcements during Friday night’s game against the Sioux Falls Stampede. Fans will also have the opportunity to learn more about WISCAP, Wisconsin’s Poverty Fighting Network, and their battle against an issue that more than 500,000 Wisconsinites face.
Capitols’ President Andrew Joudrey said he is excited to continue this tradition as working with community groups is something the organization takes great pride in.
“Making a difference in your own town is rewarding but going beyond that and helping others across the state gives us an incredible feeling of pride,” Joudrey said.
WISCAP Executive Director Brad Paul said sports like hockey can help bring light to major issues such as poverty and that he is more than grateful for this opportunity.
“We are thrilled to be hosting this event with the Capitols,” Paul said. “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.”
WISCAP and the Capitols are looking for sponsorships from $250 to $1,000 to ensure the event is a success. If you are interested in a sponsorship or hosting a group outing, please contact Brad Paul at email@example.com or Andrew Joudrey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Capitols season is presented by Stoughton Hospital and the Orthoteam Clinic run by Dr. Ashish Rawal.
