March Madness at West Bend

What a memorable NCAA tournament it was this year! Congratulations to the Wisconsin Badgers on a historic
run to the championship game! Congratulations also goes to Joe Schoenwetter from Commercial Lines Underwriting and to Sharon Klug from Subrogation for winning the prizes in the West Bend March Madness
competition. Joe won the TV for correctly picking all of the final four teams. Sharon’s prediction was within one of the total Badger points (456) in the tournament, scoring her six tickets for a game at the Kohl Center next year, along with a food/beverage allowance.
