Want to get your message out to more than 1,000 people all at one location? Consider becoming a “Charity of the Week” at the Bud Pavilion during our Wednesday Night Live concert series.
Only 501(c)3 organizations located in southeast Wisconsin, as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service, are eligible to apply.
Each charity must provide its own current and active State of Wisconsin Raffle License to participate (because of the 50/50 raffle that will benefit your charity).
Chosen charities will be provided one six-foot table and two chairs to display information, and will be located near the north entrance to the Bud Pavilion area. Each charity must provide at least four representatives to sell raffle tickets. The raffle is drawn during the band’s break, which is typically around 9:00pm. Half of the earnings will go straight to the charity that night, the other half goes to the holder of the winning ticket.
The Bud Pavilion can only select one charity per performance, and we typically have no more than 10 Wednesday Night Live performances per year. Applications are accepted through February of each new year. All selections will be made no later than March 1. Because of the volume of applications we receive, we cannot reply to each applicant. Charities that do not hear back from us by April 1 can assume they have not been selected.
