Make-A-Wish Badger Tailgate Fundraiser

On Sept. 27, Hausmann-Johnson Insurance held its first Kaden’s Wish Tailgate before the UW Badger football game and raised $31,155 for Make-A-Wish Wisconsin. The event was inspired by 9-year-old Kaden, who has a rare mitochondrial disease called Leigh syndrome. In 2011, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin granted his wish to go to Walt Disney World. Upon returning, he decided that he wanted to work to raise enough money for 100 more kids to have their wishes granted. (For information on getting your event featured in the IB Gallery, email
