MAMA CARES 2018 Winter Ball – Gratitude!

First off, we want to thank all our friends who came out to support MAMA CARES!

Through your generosity and support, our first annual “Winter Ball” was a huge success. Great music, great contributions from local businesses, and great support from our volunteers, made this our best fundraiser to date.  It’s unbelievable that every auction item raised money for the cause……and every item sold!

Extreme over the top GRATITUDE goes out to my planning committee.  Charly Rowe, Luke Jorgensen, and Rick Tvedt!

Thank you to our sponsors:

Full Compass Systems, BB Jacks Restaurant, The Next Door Brewery, Local Sounds Magazine, 105.5 Triple M, WORT, MG&E and Wisconsin Printing!

Thank you to The High Noon Saloon for being such a great host and to Ty Christensen for designing our poster. Teri Barr and WOLX, Jonathan & Kitty and WMMM for their support.

Thank you to our exceptional bands… The Rousers, Honor Among Thieves and The Lower 5th!  Y’all were wonderful!  Plus thank you to our MC, Jonathan Sutten from Triple M.

Thanks to the 50/50 winner, whose name we have lost.  He donated his half of the winnings back to Mama Cares!

Thanks to these artists and local businesses for their auction items.
