Centennial Park, Grafton, WI

Melapalooza is just a week away. We are looking forward to a great event. The long-range weather forecast is good - we’ll keep our fingers crossed. A nice day will bring out a good crowd.

What is Mel's Charities?

In 1995 Tom "Mel" Stanton and a group of friends gathered at Cedars Lanes in Cedarburg, WI to enjoy some good food and watch a little football. About 50 people attended. The group continued to get together each fall.

In 1999 everything changed, a good friend of the groups lost his sister to cancer. She was a single mother with a special needs daughter who participated in Special Olympics. The decision was made to hold a raffle during the event in her memory. $350 was donated to Special Olympics in her memory.

Mel’s Charities mission is to have Great Times for Great Causes in Ozaukee County. Mel’s specializes in funding special needs organizations, high school scholarships in memory of individuals who have passed, and human service organizations.

We have become the known name in Ozaukee County for having fun unique events. As a team (all volunteers) we are determined to be a major source of funding for local organizations that meet our mission.

It’s been an amazing journey and we look forward to continue having Great Times for Great Causes!
