ONALASKA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Burrachos in Onalaska is teaming up with the Onalaska police department to raise money for breast cancer research.
Anybody who showed up wearing pink or presented a police department flyer advertising the fundraiser, had 20% of the price of their meal donated to Justice for a Cure. Justice for a Cure was founded by retired Dane county sheriffs deputy, Joan Kamholz, who is a breast cancer survivor and she was there Tuesday evening selling merchandise for the cause.
This is the 4th year the Onalaska police department has teamed up with Burrachos for this fundraiser and general manager Adam Plowman, says it's a great way to give back to the community.
"We're in a position that, we're a restaurant in a community and when you get an opportunity to give back to the community through money or any type of fundraising like that or just community involvement, I think it's really important because it helps build that fact that you are part of that community," says Plowman.
Last year, the fundraiser raised $389 and the goal this year is to reach around $500 dollars.
