“We wanted to create a little awareness and doing something out of the ordinary," Sweeney said.
The pushback idea was formed earlier in the week. Sweeney said he and a few other local business owners collaborated on the effort to give away raffle prizes like a spa day, a free gym membership, and even tickets to the Packers hall of fame.
“This is just going to be a raffle," Sweeney said. "Originally we were thinking about doing a competition but so many people have shown up and done so good it just really made us all so proud.”
The goal of this event isn't to necessarily raise a certain amount of dollars. Sweeney said his primary goal is pushing the bus and supporting hurricane victims across the country.
All proceeds from Friday’s event will be donated to the Red Cross. Online donations can be made by clicking here.
