GRAND CHUTE, WI – The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers may not have been able to play any games during the 2020 season, but that did not stop Timber Rattlers Give Back, the team’s 501(c)3 organization, from raising money for local charities.
The annual Charity Golf Outing which was originally scheduled for June was held on September 10 at Shamrock Heights Golf Course in New London. Area golfers plus Timber Rattlers front office personnel collected nearly $9,000 through the golf and raffles that were held after the outing. A date for the 2021 Charity Golf Outing will be announced once a schedule for next season is completed.
The on-site garden was tended to with assistance from Freedom High School’s FFA chapter and it grew approximately 200 pounds of vegetables. The harvests were donated to St. Joe’s Food Pantry.
There is a current fund raiser for Timber Rattlers Give Back that the team has worked on with Pick N’ Save, Fox Communities Credit Union, Scheels, and Fleet Farm that fans can donate to yet this year.
Fang’s Virtual Trick or Treat Parade for Charity is taking entries and donations until October 28. Email a photo of your child or family in a Halloween costume and email the photo to Fang at his email address – [email protected] – before this Wednesday. Make sure to include your child’s name, city, and costume with the photo.
There is no entry fee, but we are asking for a voluntary donation to Timber Rattlers Give Back. Donations may be made through this link on the Timber Rattlers Give Back website.
A slideshow video of the entrants will be premiered on our Facebook page at 6:30pm on Friday, October 30.
Thank you to everyone who assisted us during this challenging year. We look forward to a much better 2021.
