People were streaming in to Gelein Field in Carson Park on Saturday as "Team WEAU" got set for the big game!
On Saturday WEAU 13 News and our friends at Maverick Media Radio took on the Eau Claire Cavaliers to benefit the John T. Hoffland Memorial Scholarship fund.
WEAU came away with a win, beating the Cavaliers 31 to 30. We also raised $2,500 dollars during the event.
Our long-time news director, John Hoffland, passed away July 4th of last year. Since then, there has been a scholarship fund started in his honor at UW-Eau Claire. This year we awarded the first scholarship to a journalism student at the university. The game will raise money to continue funding the scholarship program.
In addition to the game, there were some great silent auction items to bid on. There were auction items donated by the Packers, Brewers, Twins, and other sports organizations!
We want to send out a big thank you to everyone who donated and came out to watch the game!
