A tradition continues in Kewaunee Tuesday night when Kewaunee High School hosts its annual mitten toss game. Started by Kewaunee alumna Paige Kassner when she was in eighth grade, the event has benefited her Warm Hands, Warm Hearts organization for the last 7 years, collecting 965 items last year alone. Teacher Sara Rabas says even though Kassner has moved onto college, she says it is a tradition worth keeping around.
The mitten toss, which also includes hats, gloves, and scarves, will take place during the Kewaunee/Algoma game Tuesday night in Kewaunee at halftime. You can listen to the game and the big halftime toss unfold on 104.1 WRLU.
