On Wednesday, August 22, Didion held a brat fry at their Cambria mill site to benefit the Sun Prairie Disaster Relief Fund. The fund was created to help those affected by the explosion that occurred in downtown Sun Prairie on July 10th.
The brat fry sold around 600 brats and 100 hotdogs, raising $2767.00 that will be donated to the fund. There was an outpouring of support from the local community, including those who donated food and drinks, to those that stopped by to eat.
“We are so thankful to the Sun Prairie community for helping us in our time of need,” said Riley Didion, President of Didion. “We wanted to do something to help support their community in their time of need.”
Brat fry sponsors included: Cambria Oil, Farmers & Merchants Union Bank in Randolph, Kwik Trip in Pardeeville, Markesan State Bank, Mountain Fresh in Beaver Dam, Piggly Wiggly in Randolph, Otters Inn in Randolph, Subway in Pardeeville, The Dump in Cambria, and Werner Electric.
