    Hey A-Team Members (and future ones!)

    Help us get our legislators to attend this event! It's very important that we have representation at Day for Choice -- as advocates for our individuals with disabilities we must ensure our legislators are informed about why our loved ones' rights are at risk and how! 

    Send your legislator this invitation (image below)! Ours is Reid Ribble. Don't know yours? Want to join Wisconsin A-Teams in this endeavor? Contact us today!

    This year marks New Hope Center's 50th Anniversary! To kick off our golden jubilee, we're partnering with Chilton High School's a cappella group "Aquapella" Sunday February 8th at The Engler Center! Are you ready to attend "Sweets for your Sweet"?

    Join us beginning at 1PM for a dessert tasting hour compliments of local bakeries, restaurants, coffee shops and groups. And that's not all! You can buy raffle tickets for some awesome prizes, 50/50 tickets or donate directly to New Hope Center. At 2PM, you'll be treated to the talent of Chilton's finest: a group of twenty performers who are so good they don't even need instruments to dazzle us! "Aquapella" will perform an array of Valentine's Day themed music, taking a short intermission so we can announce raffle winners.

    New Hope Center receives a portion of the ticket price, and all raffle ticket and donated funds. The funds raised at this event will go towards sprucing up New Hope Center's main building. It's our hope that a revamping project will help make the appearance of our facilities match the spirit of our organization! With the help of dozens of local businesses and groups, "Sweets for your Sweet" is harmonizing our community as well as the performers themselves!


    Help us celebrate our 50th anniversary -- tickets are available at www.englercenter.com

    While sleigh bells won't be ringing until tomorrow night, some wonderful gifts were delivered this morning! Shelley Eickert and Char Nennig from Worthington Cylinders came by with their own bag of gifts filled with much needed items for our programs. They also raised $306 this season that they donated to New Hope. Thank you SO much to Shelley, Char and all our friends at Worthington for their continued generosity!

    On May 16th, a group of students visited New Hope Center as part of their language arts class “Pay It Forward” program. The group of girls raised $238 to buy supplies and items off the Day Service wish list. Check out this great video documenting their whole process:

    On Wednesday, March 19th, Day Service celebrated St. Patrick’s Day.  To show our love for the Irish, most of us wore green but EVERYONE came with a happy, 0’lucky Irish spirit. For lunch, we enjoyed corned beef and cabbage with our very own homemade shamrock shakes. 

    Everyone had fun playing Irish bingo, “pot of gold” bean bags and “Where’s the Leprechaun?” Day Service participant Ralph, pictured at left, was the  lucky one that found the hidden leprechaun. You will have to ask him where he found it!   

    In addition we enjoyed some Irish songs from our volunteer music performer, Ralph McGonegle. 

    There were a lot of Irish eyes smiling today!

    Looking to unload last year’s prom dress? Looking for this year’s? With prom season right around the corner, volunteers at New Hope Center in Chilton are hoping you’ll keep their prom dress fundraiser in mind! The group plans to host a “Priced Right” Prom Dress Event where you can sell your gently used dresses and accessories while helping raise money for New Hope Center! Doors open at 10:00AM at New Hope Center, 443 Manhattan Street, Chilton.

    New Hope will be accepting dresses, shoes, jewelry and accessories to be sold during their one-day fundraising sale. Anyone wanting to sell gently used items may drop them off on Friday, March 28th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturday March 29th from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Sellers will determine a price and, if sold, will receive the purchase price. New Hope Center is asking for a 25% donation for the use of this service. Funds will be used to support their mission to inspire freedom and independence in the lives of people with disabilities. 

    “Providing a one-stop location to sell or purchase gently used prom dresses will become more convenient and affordable,” said Linda Alger, one of the organizers. “This event will link sellers and buyers.”

    The event’s purpose is twofold; helping New Hope Center raise funding for people with disabilities throughout Calumet County and, at the same time, connecting sellers to buyers who are looking for a prom dress that is priced right. Individuals can name their price and make some money selling their gently used prom dresses.  It’s a win-win connection!

     “I think that there are a lot of different styles of dresses out there and a lot of personalities,” said Alger. “The main thing is you don’t want to show up at prom with the same dress as another girl, and [shoppers] won’t have to worry about that when they buy from us. It’s not like going to the mall where they have hundreds of the same dress.”

    If you have any questions please contact Linda Alger at New Hope Center (920) 849-9351 ext 108 or lalger@newhopeinc.org.
