The Third Branch
Court staff boost fund drive
Wisconsin Supreme Court employees were recently recognized by the United Way State Employees Combined Campaign (SECC) for having the third-highest percent increase in contributions for the 2013 fundraising campaign. The SECC is a once-a-year volunteer-driven campaign through which state of Wisconsin and University of Wisconsin employees in Dane County can give conveniently to many of their favorite charitable organizations. Since its inception in 1973, the campaign has raised a remarkable $64.1 million for charitable causes. This year marked the third time in the past 12 years that the court employees have received special recognition for their contributions.
