New fundraiser benefits colon cancer patients

Posted: Updated:

A new fundraiser is helping colon cancer patients and their families. "Brian's Fund" was created in honor of Brian Rebhahn, who lost his battle with colon cancer at the age of 42, a little over a year ago.

Brian's wife, Val, has worked with Gundersen Health System to create a new fund called "Brian's Fund" and all the money donated to this fund will benefit colon cancer patients, their families and will also help with colon cancer awareness.  

The first fundraiser is on Saturday, September 16, 2017.   "Bags for Brian- Aiming for a Cure."  is a bean bag tournament at Features in Holmen. There will also be a silent auction, raffle, and music.

It costs $30 per team with 50% payback to the winners and 50% proceeds going to “Brian’s Fund” at Gundersen Health System Medical Foundation.

Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. the day of the tournament. Bags will fly at 11:15 a.m.

Silent auction throughout the day with raffle drawings at 5:00 p.m.

Music provided by Jenna Rae with other featured guest musicians from 6-8:00 p.m. For more information visit their website.
