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 on behalf of the Children's Auction, 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 the The Challenge.
Like Pub Mania, The 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 2020 Challenge raised $249,460. Patrick's team is called King's Corner, and our team raised $15,668 - and we're working to raise more this year. Click here if you'd like to join our team!
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!
