In honor of “Big Bill” Van Wie, I will be hosting a basketball event Saturday, February 23th, 2019 at the Waunakee High School Field House. Some of the top teams and players in the state from the Fox Valley, Madison, and Milwaukee area will be competing in this event, and games will start at 8am and end around 4pm.
"Big Bill" loved the game of basketball, and enjoyed the camaraderie that the game of basketball can deliver. It was always about the kids, the experience, and the memories. In that spirit, the event will be NO charge to the attending teams, FREE admission for the fans, and FREE popcorn to all fans that show up for the event (he loved to watch a game with a bag or two of popcorn).’
This year, I ask that you bring donations to the Carbone Cancer Center, or donate to this page, in lieu of admissions and fees for the event. Big Bill passed in late 2017 of Multiple Myeloma, ending a battle after being diagnosed just 2 years prior. The Carbone Cancer Center was instrumental in prolonging his life, and my family is grateful for all that they did for "Big Bill".
I hope you can come and watch these talented 7th grade boys play on February 23rd!!
Please help me support the UW Carbone Cancer Center by making a donation through my page. The process is fast, easy and secure. Thanks so much for your support... and please don't forget to send this page to any friends you think might be interested in donating!
