You can help.

A big thank you to everyone who donated their time and energy helping GPRW at the UW-Madison men’s basketball games this past season. Our first season of concession stand coverage was a success! Thanks to your efforts, GPRW was able to raise over $3300, making it possible to replace the gates and dividers on the exterior of our kennels.

UW-Madison Football, 2015

Our efforts during the basketball season did not go unnoticed, and GPRW has been invited back to staff a concession stand for fall, 2015 football at UW Madison! There are a total of seven home games in the famous Camp Randall stadium, plus one special event. We need a minimum of 10 people to staff each game; more and we can send them to other stands to earn additional funds for the Pyrs. And – of course – we are asking for your help! To assist with the planning, here is the schedule:

Sunday, July 19 Brett Favre’s Legends of Football Check in at 1:00 pm
Saturday, Sept 5Miami, OH Redhawks TBA
Saturday, Sept 12 Troy Trojans TBA
Saturday, Sept 26 Hawaii Rainbow WarriorsCheck in at 4:30 pm
Saturday, Oct 3 Iowa Hawkeyes TBA
Saturday, Oct 17Purdue BoilermakersCheck in at 8:30 am
Saturday, Oct 31 Rutgers Scarlet Knights TBA
Saturday, Nov 21 Northwestern Wildcats TBA

Volunteers need to be at least 16 years old. Everyone signs in upon arrival; volunteers between 16 and 18 do need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The dress code is pretty straightforward; either black or khaki slacks – no jeans – and dark shoes. The stadium will provide hats and shirts for us to wear. Each volunteer does get a free meal during the event, and unlimited soda.

And do please note that if you are coming from way outside the Madison area, we can work to set up car pools. If you have friends and family who’d like to join us, please invite them. The more the merrier!

Interested? Please contact Bonnie Capwell at with your name, dates you are available, and your contact info. And with any questions you may have about participating in this fundraiser.

We’ll keep everyone updated on both our Facebook page, and our website. And, as we did throughout the basketball season, there will be post-event photos to enjoy.

Do so hope you will join us!
