Developers of what they call a potential “game-changing” multi-use project on Saukville’s east side are seeking to create a partnership that will help sustain nonprofit groups for years to come and will be a regional draw for Saukville and northern Ozaukee County.
According to plans presented to leaders of the Ozaukee Master Gardeners recently, the project north of Highway 33 and west of Northwoods Road would include a “showpiece” garden and a football field-sized public space for outdoor gatherings such as concerts, farmers markets, and festivals.
“Great Times for Great Causes”
What We Raise Here Stays Here…and We’re Just Getting Started!
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.
