On Wednesday, August 6, hundreds of faculty and staff will head to West Allis for UW-Madison Day at the Wisconsin State Fair. We’re excited to have a large contingent of CALS folks in the “CALS Corner” this year! It will feature cheese making, stories about historic CALS, pollinators, vegetables, lawn care, leaf cutter ants, and of course, miniature golf through a GIANT wheel of cheese. And so much more!
If you bring new, unopened school supplies to a State Fair admissions gate or make a cash donation to the Wisconsin Alumni Association to go towards the purchase of supplies, you receive $4 off adult admission until 4 p.m. One discount per item donated.
In 2013, during UW–Madison Day at the Wisconsin State Fair, 125, 55-gallon bags of school supplies were collected along with $5,500 in cash donations. Supplies went to students at several Milwaukee public schools.
