Thanks to Brian Olson and Jim Finkbeiner for stopping by the Sunny studios to chat about an annual Marquette County tradition that helps out a great cause. The annual Pigs -N- Heat Charity Hockey game is this Wednesday at 7-pm at Marquette’s Lakeview Arena. The game draws between 3,000 and 4,500 people, raising approximately $10,000-$14,000. The 2010 game had total ticket sales of over $17,500. Since its inception, the Pigs -N- Heat Fire Relief Fund has generated more than $336,000 and more than $240,000 has been distributed to Marquette County families who have suffered losses due to fire. The fund pays for three nights of lodging in a motel and a check to help the family start over.
