To keep the memory of Kane Buss alive, a tree and plaque will be placed at Destiny USA, where Buss was killed in a drunk driving accident last January.

The tree will be planted Friday, July 31st at 4 pm on the side of Destiny USA, next to the Cheesecake Factory. There will be a short ceremony for the dedication. After the dedication at Destiny USA, a dedication will also be held at Oneida High School on the bus circle.

Buss was killed when his car was struck by an alleged drunk driver, on his way home from a date with Amanda Pawlikowski. A love he sacrificed his life for. Jennifer Peters, who called Kane her “adopted son” says “Kane’s last heroic act was to shield Amanda from the impact. Doctors said his actions saved her life.”

Leonard Glowacki is accused of running into their vehicle on Hiawatha Boulevard, near Destiny USA. He’s facing several felony charges, including vehicular manslaughter, vehicular assault and DWI.

Extra funds raised for the memorial will go towards the Kane Buss Football Scholarship handed out in his memory.
