2016 Capn's Stockholder's Meeting Fundraiser

Capn's Roadhouse and The Randy Schopen Foundation will be holding our annual fundraiser on Christmas Eve. The proceeds will benefit The Randy Schopen Foundation. Randy started the tradition of The Stockholder's Meeting years ago to give back to the local communities that supported him at Capn's.

Location: Capn's Roadhouse

Date: December 24th, Christmas Eve

Time: Noon - 4:00 pm

The "Annual Stockholder's Meeting" is open to the public. There will be a live and silent auction, raffles, and food/drinks for purchase. If you have some time between your other holiday festivities stop out to Capn's Roadhouse for some holiday cheer, and help a great cause.



We are still in need of auction items. Large or small we'll take most anything. Some popular items are gift baskets, sports tickets or memorabilia, gift certificates, last minute holiday gifts. 



Randy took great pride in his hometown of Jefferson, Jefferson County, southern Wisconsin, and surrounding communities. Anytime someone came to him for help he was always there to lend a hand. He spent countless hours helping local organizations, organizing benefits for those in need, and paying it forward. 

After Randy passed away in December of 2011 friends and family realized that the work Randy did needed to continue. The Randy Schopen Memorial Foundation, JCF was formed to support organizations, and those in need in Jefferson, Jefferson County, southern Wisconsin, and surrounding communities. Since the foundation was formed in December of 2011 $102,587 in grants have been awarded.

Randy Schopen Foundation Supports The Jefferson County Meat Animal Project

The Randy Schopen Foundation supported the Jefferson County Meat Animal Project by purchsing Ann Schoenike's hog at the 2016 Jefferson County Fair.

The 2016 Junior Livestock Auction was held at the Jefferson County Fair on Saturday, July 9th. It is the culmination of a year’s project activities for 4-H and FFA members. As a learning and business venture, these young men and women have selected, fed and groomed a steer, lamb, hog, or dairy cow. Support of the auction provides recognition and incentive for young adults to earn college funds, buy more animals, and receive practical training in business.
