Kurt Saupe was a wonderful father, husband, scientist, teacher and athlete. He passed away in June after a long battle with leukemia. It was Kurt's wish that something good come from his passing; he asked that his friends and family find a way to remember him by supporting the work of MOM.
The Kurt W. Saupe Foundation, Inc, is pleased to announce The Kurt, a sports and music festival to be held June 7-9, 2013 in Madison.
FCI started this event as a means to support both the arts and civic awareness of families in need through the efforts of Middleton Outreach Ministry.
For more than 30 years, MOM has led a community-wide effort to prevent homelessness & end hunger in West Madison, Middleton and Cross Plains, a service area that totals more than 60,000 people. With the help of business partners, area schools, affiliated churches, service clubs and hundreds of volunteers, MOM helps those who need them most by providing basic needs: Food, Clothing, Housing & Emergency Funds, Help for Seniors and Seasonal Programs.
Each holiday season, join us at Home for the Holidays, featuring a live radio play at the beautiful state-of-the art Middleton Performing Arts Center. The event benefits MOM's efforts to prevent homelessness.
Accompanied by live music, the event includes a delicious hors d'oeuvres and dessert reception, a silent auction and holiday store, and show-stopping commercials. An event not to be missed!
"We have been going to a Christmas show every year for the last ten years as our 'make a memory instead of buying a gift' holiday tradition. We have been to the Fireside Theatre Christmas thrice, the Nutcracker Ballet in Madison, at Young Auditorium and Jefferson Council for the Performing Arts, even Transiberian Orchestra and Green Bay Packer games . but NONE were more well done, more entertaining and more professional than this performance!! Simply fabulous! Can't say enough about the wonderful gift we have received. Thank you, MOM!"
Canstruction®Madison is a competition where teams build incredible, highly imaginative structures out of canned goods and packaged food they have purchased or collected. After the competition, all the food is donated to MOM's Food Pantry. Canstruction®Madison invites the public to view the structures and contribute their own donation of canned food to help end hunger. In 2012 and 2013, the event raised 28 tons of food for families in need. The inaugural 2011 event raised nearly 20 tons of food.
