MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A local business is getting a helping hand from widely known media company Barstool Sports.

Dairyland Family Restaurant on Cottage Grove Rd. is one of the many businesses getting help from the Barstool Fund which aims to help struggling businesses during the pandemic.

Barstool founder Dave Portnoy launched the fundraising effort last month and contributed $500,000 of his own money.

Local businesses were encouraged to submit their stories to Barstool to be considered.

“We were very shocked and we were very thankful for that and can’t say enough for guy that he’s doing for the small businesses nationwide and he’s continuing to do,” said Dairyland owner Vasko Zyteja.

So far Barstool has raised $17 million for businesses across the U.S.
