Join the fun at Football Fireup on Sept. 10

The 36th Annual WALSAA Football Fire-Up and silent auction will be held at the University of Wisconsin Foundation (1848 University Ave, Madison, WI 53726) on Saturday, September 10th from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., prior to the Badgers vs. Oregon State Beavers football game. This is a great opportunity to meet with old friends and be a part of the excitement that comes with being a Badger.

The event features appearances by Bucky, the UW Spirit Squad and UW Badger Band. In addition, a silent auction will be held to raise money to award scholarships to outstanding sophomores with CALS and outstanding students within the Farm and Industry Short Course program. Highlights of the auction include week-long lodgings in Hawaii, Waupaca, Montreal (Wis.) and Door County; lodging at popular resorts in the Wisconsin Dells, various Badger sporting event tickets, a pedal combine, and dining, hotel and entertainment gift certificates.

The WALSAA annual meeting will be held at the start of Fire-Up, from 8-8:30 a.m., where business will be conducted and new board member nominees introduced.

Only a limited number of tickets are still available for Fire-Up and the Badgers vs. Oregon State Beavers game. The cost for both the Fire-Up Luncheon and game is $72 for adults; $62 for children 3 to 11; and ages under 3 are free. If you’d rather not attend the game, luncheon tickets for just the Fire-Up Tailgate are $30 for adults; $20 for children 3 to 11; and free for those younger than 3 years old. A portion of your ticket price is a 100% tax-deductible donation to WALSAA. To order tickets or for more information, contact WALSAA at (608) 438-1994 or email at
