Wisconsin Parkinson Foundation
In 2009, the founder of the Lakefront 7s rugby festival “Papa” Joe Kloiber was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The Papa Joe Golf Outing was organized to honor the man who has given so much to the Wisconsin rugby community by raising money for noble causes.
The Wisconsin Parkinson Foundation is dedicated expanding medical professional and public awareness and understanding about Parkinson disease. Proceeds from the golf outing are donated to the foundation to support their mission.
Hunger Task Force
The Hunger Task Force works to prevent hunger and malnutrition by providing food to people in need today and by promoting social policies to achieve a hunger free community tomorrow. The Lakefront 7s rugby festival supports Hunger Task Force by holding a food drive every summer during the festival.
