La Crosse Area Tavern League donates to local organizations

The Wisconsin Tavern League is celebrating tavern month by giving back to local communities.              

In La Crosse County, the La Crosse Area Tavern League Foundation donated nearly $880,000 to area charities this year alone.

The league gave a $1,000 to each of the local park and rec departments.

They also gave $1,500 to place benches with the Crime Stopper logo and tip line on them throughout the community.

“It’s very proud, I mean we love helping the community. We’re an integrated part of all large and small communities and we love giving back to the community that is so good to us,” said the President of the La Crosse Co. Tavern League.

In 2014, Wisconsin Tavern League members have donated about $15-million to Wisconsin Charities.
