A few weeks ago Bar Buddies Boo hosted our first annual Bowling for Buddies Tournament at Thunderbird Lanes. The funds raised went directly to offset the many expenses of operating Baraboo’s Safe Ride Program.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the many people and businesses that made this first event what I feel was a huge success, Napa Auto Parts for the extensive support with parts and supplies, sponsoring a team and donating raffle items; Allure Hair Salon for sponsoring a lane as well as a team and donating an auction item; Pumphouse for sponsoring a team and donating; Luther Farms; Brute Construction; Baraboo River Runners Snowmobile Club; Jose’s Mexican Restaurant; Don Rick Insurance; Baraboo Motors Group; Glacier Rock; Viking Express Market; and Glacier Valley Ford all for sponsoring a lane and donating.
These businesses that generously sponsored a lane or a team, Bunbury Realtors; Cal-Ag; Colby Chiropractic; Elite Catering; Gold Star Machine; Hanger Heating and Air Conditioning; Just for Kicks Dance Studio; MSA Professional Services; Nichols Philipp Legal; Pauquette Center for Psychological Services; Scenic Bluffs Equipment; Weyh’s Window Washing; Deppe Transit; and Frankies Bar.

I could not have done it without these awesome volunteers, Kandie Beckwith, Patty Zirzow, Rhonda Rodenschmit, Alan Abrahamson, Lori Sahr and Dusty Hagar. Of course, there are all of the bowlers and spectators who came from near and far to show their support.
If I inadvertently missed anyone, please accept my sincere apologies. With everyone’s help, we make our community stronger and safer, making a difference together. Thank you all again for your wonderful support and please remember if you choose to drink, please choose not to drive. Bar Buddies Boo, 370-4354, is your free safe ride home.
