The Neighbors' Place Hosts 7th Annual Empty Bowls

Nov 22, 2014 11am - 2pm

Rothschild Pavillion
Local artists, students, and community members handcraft and donate hundreds of bowls to the event each year. These bowls serve as a reminder that somewhere in our community there is someone who is hungry and faces an uncertain future due to poverty.

For a $10 ticket (children 6-12 $5 (meal only); children under 6 eat free), attendees will receive a:

• Handcrafted bowl
• Meal of soup, bread, and dessert (donated by local restaurants and chefs)
• Live (local) music
• Opportunity to participate in a silent auction
• The satisfaction of knowing you've helped a neighbor in need - all proceeds from the event benefit The Neighbors' Place Food Bank!

The Neighbors' Place Food Bank provides food to more than 500 families each week. But with 25% of our neighbors in Marathon County living in poverty, this number continues to increase--despite the fact that the majority of these families are employed.

The Hannah Center Giving for Life Banquet and Auction

Oct 9, 2014 5:30pm

Hotel Marshfield, 2700 S Central Ave, Marshfield, WI 54449
The Hannah Center Hosts Annual Giving for Life Event at Hotel Marshfield

On October 9th, The Hannah Center will host their annual Giving for Life Banquet and Auction at Hotel Marshfield. The theme of the evening is “There is No Place Like Home” and will include elements from the classic movie, The Wizard of Oz.

The organization’s mission has expanded to include all women in crisis and as the center’s services expand, The Hannah Center hopes to encourage greater involvement and support from surrounding communities in Marathon, Wood, and Portage counties. “This event will be a great way for the community to come together to show their support for the women and children The Hannah Center serves,” said Program Coordinator, Tricia Fancher. “It is amazing what great change that can provoke within a woman’s heart when she sees she has the community behind her for support.”

The silent auction will begin at 5:30pm, with the banquet following at 6:30pm. Local author and speaker, Cynthia Ruchti, will be hosting the evening. The guest speaker will be Chet McDoniel, an inspirational speaker who was born with no arms and shortened legs. Despite the odds, Chet has overcome many challenges and shares a message of hope and the value of life.

"This year The Hannah Center is looking to fundraise $30,000 through our annual Giving for Life Banquet & Silent Auction,” said President of The Hannah Center’s Board of Directors, Aimee Tippen. “We are currently looking for event and table sponsors, who share a heart and commitment to assist women and their children in crisis, to partner with us for this event.” All proceeds from the event will directly benefit The Hannah Center in their mission to assist women in crisis through compassion and guidance in a nurturing environment.

Tickets for the event can be purchased online at www.hannahcenter.com or at the following locations in Marshfield: Arby’s, Biggby Coffee, Janet’s Yarn, and Pioneer Bank.

About The Hannah Center:
The Hannah Center has been assisting women in crisis through compassion and guidance in a nurturing environment since 1993. They are committed to preserving life, providing a home, and promoting change.
