About Us

In 2011, a group of dairy industry individuals decided it was time for the Wisconsin dairy industry to raise funds to help others.  As a result, we formed Dairy Cares of Wisconsin.

On July 27, 2019, our 9th Annual Dairy Cares Garden Party reached new heights, bringing in $250,000.  Since its inception, this event has raised more than $1.3 million for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. 

Our hosts — Jim and Annette Ostrom of De Pere — keep the garden party’s focus simple: Bringing friends together to improve the lives of children. 

Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin was once again been selected as the recipient of our fund raising.  Our goal is to provide support with funding for cures of childhood diseases and to help children and parents cope with the pain, stress and worry caused by a serious diagnosis. 

As we move forward, Dairy Cares is asking for your help.  We need you on our team as one of our amazing sponsors.  As a sponsor, you will accompany Dairy Cares in building the necessary resources to help Wisconsin’s children! 

When we look at all we have accomplished during this journey, we are humbled and deeply grateful for your commitment to changing the odds for children and families who face some very tough challenges.  The dairy industry has been rewarding to so many of us and we hope you can help us give a little back. 

Please take the time to review our  sponsorship opportunities.  Our various levels of support include a variety of ways to demonstrate your profound support and have a positive impact on children throughout our communities.
