“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 2019 Mel’s Charities provided grants totaling over $180,000 to Ozaukee County recipients. What began as a $350 gift in 1999 has now grown to over $1.1 million in total grants.

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