Wisconsin Trip Raises Over $6K For Art Association


The 2024 Beach Talk Radio show at the Fox River Brewing Company in Oshkosh, Wisconsin raised $6,355 for the Fort Myers Beach Art Association. Several hundred people came out to watch the show and donate to a beloved organization on Fort Myers Beach.

Here’s how the money was raised:
– The owners of Fox River Brewing donated 15% of their sales from the day of our Wisconsin show, plus proceeds from Dumbassery Ale hats and shirts. That total was $2,995
– Proceeds from Beach Talk Radio selling Dumbassery Ale hats and shirts totaled $1,550.
– On show day in Wisconsin we collected $1,310 from our prize raffle and a $500 check was donated during the show.
The total raised for the Art Association was $6,355

The money will be turned over to Art Association Treasurer Sheri Fischer during our show at Margaritaville tomorrow.Kim and I would like to thank the following people and businesses for making our Wisconsin trip a smashing success.

Heidi, Jay, John and Doreen Supple from the Fox River Brewing Company for making this event happen. Not only did they donate proceeds from food and beverage sales from the day and create hats and shirts, they also created a special Dumbassery Ale beer they sold on draft and by the 6-pack.

Thank you to our 4 sponsors who made the trip to Wisconsin possible: La Ola Restaurants, Michael Stewart, Powerblock Builders and Tri-Town Construction.

Thank you to our friends at The Pink Shell Resort, DiamondHead Resort, Margaritaville Resort and Sandy Bottom for their tremendous prize packages. Those outstanding prizes helped us raise over $1,300 in our raffle giveaway.
A big thank you to Lee Melsek and Ellie Bunting for providing great Fort Myers Beach trivia questions. And Dave Nusbaum for donating a pair of his Wisconsin trivia questions and 2 of his season tickets to see the Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans that we gave away.

And, of course, THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the show. It means so much to us that anyone would travel any distance to see our show. Our followers are the best in the world and we appreciate each and everyone of you.

You can make a donation to the Fort Myers Beach Art Association HERE.

If you live anywhere near the Fox River Brewing Company on the Fox River in Oshkosh stop by to pick up a 6-pak or two of Dumbassery Ale before they run out.
