“Since 1995, it’s been the mission of the Foundation to provide year-round support to the Wisconsin State Fair and, in light of the news of the 2020 Fair cancellation, our work is now more meaningful than ever,” said Foundation Executive Director Anna Zeck. “By bidding now and often, generous donors support needed renovations and enhancements to the Fair Park to ensure the Wisconsin State Fair will be here for many generations to come.”
The online auction closes at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 5, 2020, which coincides during the Foundation’s annual Golf-on-a-Stick golf outing. The Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation, a 501c3 nonprofit, uses donor contributions to support agricultural education, arts and environment-related programming tied to the Fair. In 2019, the Wisconsin State Fair Park Foundation disbursed more than $360,000 toward mission-driven programming tied to the Fair Park.
