Greater Bucky Open September 17, 2006
Another fantastic year and outing for the GBO! Great visit to the UW Children's Hospital, great Badger football game and a super golf outing. Thanks to all involved, we raised enough money to donate $17,500 this year I am also proud to announce once again that due to our low overhead, 100% of sponsors' monetary donations will once again be passed through directly to our recipients.

We are also very excited about our "GREATER BUCKY OPEN LOUNGE" which will debut with the new American Family Children's Hospital in August 2007! The GBO Lounge will be located in the Family Waiting Room in the Hematology/Oncology Unit.

There is work to be done to accomplish this goal as we are only $15,000 away from our $50,000 commitment so your continued support is greatly appreciated!


Officer Hanson delivering toys
Friday's visit to the UW Children's Hospital was awesome. Bucky Badger, eight members of the UW football team, Madison Police Officer Mike Hanson and the GBO staff delivered donated toys and brought good cheer to the kids. It is an amazing experience to see faces light up when Bucky & Co. make the rounds.
