With the start of the winter sports season, Kretz Lumber Company is pleased to announce another season of charitable giving tied to the athletic success of the Red Robin varsity teams.
Similar to last year’s program, the hardwood lumber manufacturer will select a weekly local charity, and make a monetary contribution based on the play of Antigo’s varsity teams during that week’s home contest. The company will donate $5 for each:
- Three point shot made (boys/girls basketball)
- Each goal scored (boys/girls hockey)
- Each individual win (wrestling)
- Each 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place event finish (gymnastics)
- Each 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place event finish (boys swimming)
- Each game won (boys and girls bowling)
“Our company is very team orientated, with many of our employees former Red Robin students and athletes,” commented company president Troy Brown. “We figured this was a unique way we could show our community pride, while supporting our local high school teams and student athletes, all the while helping some of our great local causes.”
“We’re hoping by highlighting home contest in these sports, we may encourage more fan support as well,” Brown continued. “New this year, we will also be making a year-end contribution to our Antigo Athletic program based on the season long stats, and thank the athletic department staff and student athletes for helping us in this endeavor.”
Last year Kretz Lumber Company provided financial gifts to the following local charities: The Giving Tree of Langlade County, Langlade County Humane Society, Avail, Antigo Community Food Pantry, Boys and Girls Club of Langlade County, WeekEnd Backpack Program (WEB), Habitat for Humanity of Langlade County, and Langlade County 4-H.
