MILWAUKEE -- Badgers fans will have some company in downtown Milwaukee as a little bit of Louisiana makes its way to Wisconsin this holiday weekend. They're getting geared up for the big game -- and pitching in to help those affected by recent flooding in the Pelican State.
Estimates indicate more than 500,000 people are adversely impacted by the August flooding in Louisiana. So ahead of the downs and distances, there is now a push to generate donations for those affected.
"Today, and tomorrow, 10 percent of food and beverage sales here at the Lobby Lounge and in Blu will go back to the Red Cross Louisiana Flood Relief Fund," Drusch said.
"Thank you. Thank all of you, for doing that. We really appreciate it," said Claude Reynaud, an LSU fan.
"The fact that you guys are doing something like this here is, it's heart-warming," said Pat Casey, an LSU fan.
Casey said knowing where the money is going means he will continue to consume.
