CLUCK has donated this beautiful, all-cedar coop to Aly’s Honky Tonk Hustle to raise money for cancer research. If you need a coop, you could get a good deal on this one and contribute to a worthy cause at the same time.
This version of the Williams Sonoma coop was built by a local craftsman. It would be a great home for 4 bantams or 3 full-size chickens. It has 2 nest boxes, a winter/summer door, roof garden and removable vinyl floor for easy cleaning. It is a $1,250 value. You can see it at CLUCK for the next few days.
The event is Saturday, May 16.. The 5K race starts at 10:00 a.m. at McFarland High School, 5101 Farwell Street. The silent auction starts at 6 p.m., and the Honky Tonk After Party runs from 6:00 p.m. to midnight at the Madison Curling Club 4802 Marsh Road, McFarland.
Aly Wolff was a chicken-keeper and a beautiful, remarkable customer of CLUCK who died from cancer in 2013 at age 20. During her all-too-short life, she used her passion for people, animals and the natural world to make a difference. Aly’s legacy is one of joy. Even in the last weeks of her life, she was caring for her chicks, planning a garden and reminding us all to live life fully through her indomitable example.
In the months before she died, Aly set up a charity 5K Run/Walk and Honky Tonk after party, which her parents and friends are carrying on in her name. More than $240,000 has been raised since 2014 with all proceeds donated to The Aly Wolff Neuroendocrine Project at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, through The Aly Wolff Foundation, Inc.
