Wisconsin Badger Camp will hold its first Badger Camp 1966 Event at the Holiday Gardens Event Center in Potosi Saturday.
Doors will open at 4 p.m. and dinner will be at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale at Badger Camp’s office or by calling 348-9689.
The Badger Camp 1966 Event is replacing Badger Camp’s annual UW–Platteville Christmas Telethon, which ended last year. The event will raise funds to financially support individuals with developmental disabilities who wish to attend Badger Camp.
The Badger Camp 1966 Event will include a dinner, guest appearances from retired Green Bay Packers players Jerry Kramer and Gilbert Brown, silent and live auction, music and door prizes.
“The Badger Camp 1966 Event will be a way to still raise money to financially support our campers, keep our supports engaged and celebrate serving individuals with developmental disabilities since 1966,” said Badger Camp development director Kayla Leibfried.
Wisconsin Badger Camp is an independent nonprofit organization located approximately 10 miles south of Prairie du Chien and serves approximately 900 individuals with developmental disabilities each summer. Badger Camp relies on the community’s time, talent, and financial assistance to provide for its campers.
