Adventure Day, a fundraiser event for the Sunshine Place, will be held for its second year on Thursday to honor the memory of Sun Prairie Fire Captain Cory Barr, the City of Sun Prairie announced. The event will be hosted by the Downtown Sun Prairie’s Business Improvement District (BID) on Thursday from 2:30-7 p.m. They hosted the event for the first time last year after learning that Cory Barr, a Sun Prairie Fire captain that lost his life in a gas main explosion in 2018, wished to hold an event that supported the Sunshine Place, a local resource for community and social services. The event is family friendly and while it is a fundraiser, there is no cost to participate. “We are excited that Downtown Sun Prairie is once again hosting Adventure Day in the spirit of what Cory Barr envisioned to benefit Sunshine Place,” said Susan Schmidt, Director of Development at Sunshine Place.
