Pub Mania, the world's greatest barstool challenge, completed its 11th and final event on December 5 & 6, 2019 raising $355,453 for children and families in need in the greater Lakes Region. After only 11 years, Pub Mania generated over $2.3 Million along with many great memories. Congratulations and thanks to all involved!!
On the shoulders of Pub Mania, a brand new and pandemic-proof event has been created called - It's for the Kids Community Challenge (or the Challenge for short).
Like Pub Mania, Challenge is comprised of local businesses, organizations and friends and families who create teams and creatively fundraise their way to Closing Ceremonies, where coveted awards await the top teams in this friendly but spirited event.
In its' first year, during the pandemic, the Challenge raised $249,460 and a new bar has been set.
It's all for the kids, and we invite you to join in the fun and excitement as we take the spirit of giving to a whole new level this year!
