The Marquette County Tavern League Donates $68,000 to 28 Different Charities in 2012

The Marquette County Tavern League consists of 42 member establishments in Briggsville, Germania, Marquette, Montello, Oxford, Packwaukee, Princeton, Neshkoro and Westfield. While we all know these establishments as great places to eat, watch sporting events, hold a shower or wedding or just have a drink and relax with friends, what we don’t all realize is the contributions they make to the communities around them.

In the past year, the Marquette County Tavern League has helped raise money for Operation Santa, Diverse Options, Yeti’s Snowmobile Club, Safe Ride, Budda Box, Marquette County EMS, American Red Cross, Share & Care Food Bank, and Hope House. There were also numerous fundraisers for local individuals and their families who were in need of assistance.

The Tavern League also offers the Safe Ride Program with the goal of providing rides for impaired drivers. This helps to keep the roads a safer place for other drivers. This program is available to all active Tavern League members. Just ask the bartender to get you a safe ride home. In 2012 Safe Ride provided 217 rides in Marquette County.
