Dear Jillian, staff, volunteers, Maxed Out, vendors, and donors… I can't tell you what a great time I had at the 9th Annual Evening of Celebration and what it meant to me to be a recipient of The Gift of Love.The [generous]items presented to me are so important to my wellness program and were already put to use the next day! My husband Jon and my guests (especially my niece Sara who nominated me) are so appreciative of the gifts and how special they made me feel. Jon laughs because he said this morning that he thinks my favorite of the "package" was Jillian's FIRST TIME CD….as I dance around the kitchen…love it, thanks!! I would love to help with your organization in the future if you will have me! Thank you, thank you…all of you, but especially you, Jillian, for having a vision…for not wasting the cancer that your loved ones had! I have cancer, but it DOESN'T have me!!
Love, Hugs, and Blessings!
We are in the final preparations for our annual Evening of Celebration fundraiser being April 20, from 5:30 p.m. – 10 p.m., at the West Bend Insurance Prairie Center. Maxed Out will be our great entertainment and our new "Golden Ticket" raffle (only 100 tickets being sold for a chance to win one of ten prizes valued of at least $200).
If you would like to donate items to the raffle or silent auction, there is still time to get them in. Just call the ticket reservation line (262.308.2891), the information will be forwarded.
Thank you for all of your support throughout the year. . Hope to see you all April 20th
Begin with 39 teams and one Supermoto Sport Off Road track. Add 90 pounds of pork, 360 burgers, and assorted drinks. Stir in some noise and some action. Don’t forget to top it off with a little Benny Carlson, professional motocross rider, and you have a recipe for fundraising success.
Last Saturday, we benefited from that recipe during a Motorcycle Charity Race at Washington County Fair Park. We raised money and awareness as we served up food and shared our mission with new people. Many thanks to the dedicated volunteers who organized and worked the event which benefited the Gift of Love program.

Great Article in the West Bend News 7/12/2012 – Thanks to All who contributed……
Hello to all….
I just wanted to keep you up to date on some of the strives we are making to get the word out about Chix 4 a Cause. We are a volunteer organization that is on a mission to raise money to help people battling cancer while going through treatment.
We am asking anyone in Southeastern Wisconsin who knows of any companies, organizations, or other groups that would be interested on inviting Founder and CEO Jillian Clark to speak and inform them of what Chix 4 a Cause does to help others to share that information with us. We are looking to partner up in many ways and maybe we would be a good fit or may even be able to help someone they know.
We have had six events in the last two months which have benefited Chix 4 a Cause due to our helping Gift of Love recipients somehow connected to the sponsoring organization or who had Jillian speak to them on what Chix 4 a Cause does.
Please keep us in mind…Check the website for contact info.
Hello to all Chix 4 a Cause supporters who attended the 8th Annual Evening of Celebration held April 21, 2012.
I especially would like to thank all the businesses and personal donations of prizes and money. With your support we raised over $10,000. This was my first year being the fundraising committee chair. I appreciate all your generosity which made my role effortless due to all of your donations. I am looking forward to working with you in 2013.
Thank you again!!!!!
Shelly Sievert Fundraising Committee Chair
Thanks so much to those who volunteered their time, spent their money, donated services or items, which made the evening a stunning success! Chix 4 a Cause couldn’t help people without YOUR contributions.
We received this message from a Chix 4 a Cause volunteer and daughter of a Gift of Love recipient which she wanted us to share:
"My Mom and our entire family want to thank Chix 4 a Cause for making my Mom's journey to fight her ovarian cancer a little bit easier with the "The Gift of Love" she received last week. I have been a part of this organization in the past and I loved giving out Gifts of Love. Now I know how those familes felt as they received them. My Mom and I shed a few tears that day as Jill and Sue gave her the gift cards. My hard work and dedication to Chix when I was there was an amazing experience. Good things you do in your life will always come back. I miss my friends at Chix 4 a Cause and want to say Hi to them and let them know how much this gift of Love means to me. Keep up the good work."
