The Greater Bucky Open, Inc. is a non-profit corporation & your generous tax deducible donations will benefit the following 2 worthwhile recipients:


UW Health American Family Children's Hospital

The American Family Children's Hospital opened in August 2008. With another $50,000 commitment, we secured a permanent Greater Bucky Open Family Lounge located in the Hematology/Oncology unit. This amazing room includes computers, a big TV, coffee maker, drink machine and a few couches for patients and their families to hang out in. We are also proudly supporting the funding for their food program which provides meals & snacks for families allowing them to stay with their child during their stay.


Since 1949, Bucky has donated endless hours of time and energy entertaining everybody from local kindergarten classes to university functions to 80,000 screaming football fans at Camp Randall.  A small portion of the proceeds goes towards Bucky Badger student scholarships and other miscellaneous Bucky related expenses managed by the UW Athletic Department.
