“We are excited to say we doubled the funds raised from last year for the American Red Cross,” said Andy Kaye, Co-Owner, of Recoveron Restoration. “When we started the tailgates the main objective was to raise funds for American Red Cross and increase awareness of the needs of our community and we are excited to see it working,” said Kaye.

Andy, his staff and their friends and family put on a free tailgate party for the community at six home games this Packers season. Guests were treated to brat, burgers and refreshments for a donation to the Red Cross.

“I am so thankful to the Recoveron staff and their families to make this event even bigger this year to support the Red Cross financially and create an awareness of the needs,” said Kaye. “You can count on us to do it again next year.”

 

Tailgating for a cause: Local company hosts fundraiser on game days

ASHWAUBENON – Brats and chili were doing more than just filling the bellies of hungry tailgaters across the street from Lambeau Field Sunday.

“All the proceeds here go to the local Red Cross for local disaster relief, which we feel is a very good cause,” said Andy Kaye with Recoveron Restoration Services.

Since the season started the company has hosted this fund raising tailgate. The company has been at it for two seasons, raising more than $2,000 last year and looking at more than $3,500 this year.

And the money couldn’t be coming at a better time. Since July, the local Red Cross has provided assistance at 200 fires in Northeast Wisconsin; their “yearly” average is around 250.

One of the most recent, was the Pulaski fire, which destroyed three buildings and damaged two others in the village’s downtown. The Red Cross assisted eleven people displaced in that fire. “It does cost money to help people in our community,” explained Steve Hansen, Red Cross Regional Chapter Executive.  “The American Red Cross is there with food, clothing a roof over someone’s head.”

How much money exactly? Red Cross officials estimate they spend more than $500,000 in disaster relief efforts, with the majority of those funds coming from donations, like the tailgate.

And with the year as busy as it’s been and right in the midst of their peak months, Red Cross officials expect to exceed that budgeted amount this year. “The winter months tend to be our busiest time, two-thirds of our fires we respond to happen between November and February,” Hansen said.

And because of that, officials say making donations and public awareness of the need are particularly important this time of year. Sunday’s tailgate was the final one of the season, but coordinators say you can expect to see them again come pre-season.

Recoveron Hosts Tailgate Parties to Benefit American Red Cross

Packer fans can now have their brats and help out a good cause at the same time! Recoveron Restoration Services is hosting three more Packers pre-game tailgate parties to raise funds for the local American Red Cross. Recoveron’s tailgate fundraising goal is to raise more than $1,500.

 “On a regular basis, we see firsthand the good work done by the Red Cross,” said Andy Kaye, president of Recoveron. “As a local restoration company, we work with individuals, families and businesses that have just experienced a significant disaster in their lives, including fires and floods. These tailgate parties will raise money to help the Red Cross continue to provide much needed services.”

 During local – and national – disasters, the Red Cross provides basic emergency needs such as shelter, food, medications, baby formula and more. This is on top of the emotional support and health services the Red Cross provides at the scene of disasters; most of which are local fires. “With support from business like Recoveron, we are better prepared and ready to respond around the clock,” said Steve Hansen, Regional Chapter Executive for the local Red Cross. “Plus, it’s a great idea to combine a tailgate party with a fundraiser – it really makes for a festive atmosphere and helps a great cause.”

 Three tailgate parties are scheduled for upcoming home games:

  • Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 12:15 p.m. (3:15 p.m. game time). Bent Grass, a local bluegrass band will perform at 12:30 p.m.
  • Sunday October 16, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. (Noon game time)
  • Monday, November 14 at 4:00 p.m. (7:30 p.m. game time)

 Entry to all tailgates parties is free, with food and beverages for a donation. All tailgate parties take place at

2036 S. Ridge Road, Green Bay (one block south of Kroll’s West) and are open to the public.

Recoveron Restoration Services is a full-service restoration company, specializing in fire, water and mold restoration for both commercial and residential losses. Recoveron serves all of eastern Wisconsin with locations in Green Bay and Plymouth, WI. For more information, go to: www.recoveron.com

 The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Recoveron raises $1,515.00 to Benefit the American Red Cross during their Seven Packers Tailgate Parties

“It was a good first year raising $1,515.00 for the American Red Cross Lakeland Chapter,” said Andy Kaye, President, Recoveron Restoration.  “When we started the tailgates the main objective was to raise funds for American Red Cross and increase awareness of the needs of our community.”  Andy, his staff and their friends and family put on a free tailgate party for the community at seven home Packers games at 2036 S. Ridge Road, Green Bay. Guests were treated to brat, burgers and refreshments for a donation to the Red Cross.

“Frankly we were not sure what to expect,” said Kaye. “Not only did we accomplish our objective of raising money and awareness of needs for the Red Cross but also developed relationships with so many people that stopped by to support.”
