    Mark your calendars as we join forces with the 1st Thursday Women's Networking Group and make this a standing event for networking to MDWA members and guests, as well. 

    The 1st Thursday Women's Networking Group meets every 1st Thursday of every month to network with other women in the Fox Cities Community.  In an effort to bring more networking events to MDWA, but also not re-invent the wheel, why not join their group and meet even more people!

    Julie Arend or Sarah Fabry are co-chairs of this event.  Please contact them with any questions, otherwise, one of them will always be present to handle any questions the night of from MDWA members.  

    In addition, obviously bring business cards, but remember to check in that you were at the event by giving Sarah or Julie one of your cards.  A card will be picked from each event and you will have the opportunity to have the spotlight shown on you and your business to all of the members of MDWA!!

    We hope to see you there, but be sure to start planning your calendar going forward, as well!  Anyone is welcome, so bring a friend, bring a guest or bring someone you think might be a great fit for MDWA

    The 2019 recipient for the Black and Pink Ball is B.A.B.E.S., Inc. Child Abuse Prevention Program.  B.A.B.E.S., Inc. has proudly served youngparents and their children since 1997.  Earlier this year, B.A.B.E.S. piloted the internationally known Strengthening Families Program.  This program is new to our region, and is being implemented as the new service delivery model for B.A.B.E.S., Inc.

    The curriculum provides guidance for parents and their children, exercises to practice at home, as well as real-time experience during the workshops.  With this evidence-based curriculum, B.A.B.E.S., Inc. believes: (1) it will be life-changing for all involved, (2) child abuse and neglect in our communities will be significantly reduced, and (3) our community will grow much stronger, as we strengthen our families.

    Funds raised through the Black & Pink Ball will help support this key initiative.

    Pastor Mahnie, Executive Director and Yvonne Kehl, Volunteer Board Chair will share information about B.A.B.E.S., Inc.’s new strategic direction, and its potential impact for the young families served.
