The Verlo Mattress Factory Stores franchise in Fort Atkinson, Wis., hosted its annual Spring Fling to benefit the American Cancer Society. The Relay for Life event included raffles, musical entertainment and a race between several mascots, including the factory direct’s own Mattress Man. Unfortunately for Mattress Man, Milwaukee Brewers baseball team mascot Bernie Brewer outpaced him and won the race. All proceeds from the event, including a percentage of mattress sales, were donated to the charity.
