Winter WI - On December 6th, 2023 Coaches Joshua "Hootie" Hautamaki and Curtis DeCora met with Jill Petit of the Lakewood Cafe to accept their generous donation of $305. The donation came from the marketing campagin to help promote the grassroots basketball athlete, Gunnar Greuel and his remarkable 2022-2023 season whereas he was crowned, "Wisconsin's Rebound King." Gunnar led the state of Wisconsin across all divisions with 19.1 rebounds per game, and according to MaxPreps was 4th in the nation for rebounds per game.
The Fundraising Campaign
The strategy was to identify a menu option that was popular and make it large enough to have a price tag of $20.20 to commemorate the 20 point and 20 rebound season achieved by Gunnar Greuel.
In a change of direction, Jill recommended that we promote the Beef Phill, which is Gunnar's favorite sandwich, and would donate $2.20 from each sandwich. The community came out in support to purchase 138 sandwiches, and those funds go to support the Winter Boys Varsity Basketball program.
Uses of Funds
The Winter Warrior Boys Basketball program has elected to use the funds to help the boys attend the Wisconsin State tournament in March of 2024. If the boys program don't end up doing in Madison playing in the state tournament, they'll surely be there to watch and participate in the energetic environment.
The Winter Warriors Boys Basketball program wants to thank the community for coming out to show their support, and Lakewood Cafe for their generous donation.
