‘We are here to raise money by passing the boot and filling the boot’: Fundraising benefits families of fallen firefighters | News

MORNING BUSINESS REPORT: Student loan is not worth it, help with internet account, large wind farm News

This was one of a number of “Fill the Boot” fundraisers to take place in Mineral Point to benefit families. “Given the tragedy that the community has suffered this week, we’re here to raise money by passing the boot and filling the boot for families of Jim Ludlum and Brian Busch,” McGettigan said. The Mine Shaft bar in Mineral Point is also holding a “Fill the Boot” fundraiser that runs through Sunday.

“Anybody that’s here has crossed paths or been friends with either one of the guys,” McGettigan said. “Me personally, I grew up in the same neighborhood as the Busch family, so between their brothers and their sisters, I was around them growing up–only two years younger than Brian, so we were together a lot as kids.” McGettigan grew up in the same neighborhood as Brian Busch and remembers him fondly.

During this tragic time, McGettigan said it is crucial for the community to come together to honor both men and help their families. “They’ve got a boot set up at both of the entrances, so as people are paying their admission, the boot is there for them to drop money in,” Frank McGettigan, an alumni of Mineral Point High School said.
