Blue Jean Bingo 2017 Was a success! 


On Friday, May 12,2017 425 people filled the Grand Ballroom of the Country Springs Hotel for  Blue Jean Bingo. This event featured an all-you-can-eat fish buffet, licensed bingo event with cash prizes, a wine pull and amazing auction items. Because of the support of all of the attendees, sponsors and supporters, this was our most successful Blue Jean Bingo ever raising $41,835 to support our programs.

NAMIWalks Waukesha 2017



On Saturday, September 16th, close to 400 individuals joined together at NAMIWalks Waukesha to celebrate mental health recovery and to raise funds and awareness for mental health. It was a beautiful day filled with stories of hope and recovery. We are excited to share that we have raised $73,362 so far for NAMI Waukesha’s support, education and advocacy programs that are offered free of charge in our community. Because of the support we receive through NAMIWalks Waukesha, we are able to provide hope and help to those impacted by mental health conditions in our community and their loved ones.

NAMIWalks Waukesha attendees were able to enjoy delicious food and coffee before the 5K Walk donated by Mama D’s Coffee, Sweet Perfections, Café de Arts, Holsum Bakery Outlet, Panera, Patterson Orchards, Pick n’ Save and Sentry. We were honored to have Kelly Katona from FM 102.1 lead our NAMIWalks ceremony as our Emcee and to have Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow join us to speak about the importance of mental health. After the walk around beautiful Frame Park, attendees enjoyed a delicious lunch donated by Zilli Hospitality Group, Texas Roadhouse and Olive Garden.
