OUR STORY

 

Mel’s Charities’ mission is to provide “Great Times for Great Causes,” supporting non-profit organizations in Ozaukee County, with a strong emphasis on special needs, memorial scholarships, and human service organizations.

Our goal has always been to help others while having fun. In 2020 Mel’s Charities provided grants totaling over $206,000 to Ozaukee County recipients. What began as a $350 gift in 1999 has now grown to over $1.4 million in total grants.

One hundred percent of the net proceeds from all events are donated back to the community.

15 years ago today this community lost Cedarburg High School students Brian Rintelman (l), TJ Beck and Brian's father Don from an automobile accident.
Our heart aches for the Beck & Rintelman families. We pray that you receive peace, joy and comfort knowing that they will always be impacting young lives through their scholarships.

We’ll never forget. Prayers and thoughts with you, Katie, and your whole family. 🙏🙏🙏

This is one moment in our memories that we won’t forget. Prayers go to the Rintelman and Beck families. Ed and Coco

Huge loss for their families. Thinking of you today Melissa Cosgrove I still remember coming to your house and being with you that night 💔 💔 💔

Never Forget 💙(((HUGS)))

A tragic day for two families! Sending love and hugs!

We think of them often and wonder - always - what it would be like to have them back with us... Remembering today, Don's witty intelligence, Brian's wry sense of humor and the friendship he shared with TJ. Also honoring the incredible strength that Ann and Katie have shown since this terrible tragedy happened.

Yes we were with you. I remember that sad day so vividly. May they all rest in peace..

Wonderful kids and wonderful families. A tragic and horrible loss .

Think of Don and Brian often. Hugs to you, Ann and Katie

Thought of you today Ann and Katie. Don and Brian are forever in our hearts!

Sending you my thoughts and prayers ❤️

Such a sad day. Thoughts and prayers to both families ❤️🙏🏻

Always with us until we are with them #neverforget

Thank you for keeping TJ and Brian’s memory alive through their scholarships.

When people say that life can change in an instant, know that that can be true.

Thinking of you Ann and sending you a big cyber hug.

Blessings to all!!!🙏🏻

We remember it well, despite having been away from Advent for some years by that time. You never do forget things like that.

Always remembered. <3 <3 <3

Dear Ann Gall Rintelman-Tice, I lift you up in prayer 🙏✨

Such a tragedy. Three wonderful people gone in an instant

Always in our hearts ♥️

❤️

#neverforget

Sending love on this tough day.
