The Mary Lou & Arthur F. Mahone Fund | Reaching for Rainbows: Pursuit of Excellence Gala | Postponed Until Further Notice

2020 Reaching for Rainbows: Pursuit of Excellence Gala


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mahone Fund has postponed its upcoming Reaching for Rainbows Pursuit of Excellence Gala until further notice. The gala was originally scheduled for Thursday, April 23, 2020 at Carthage College’s Todd Wehr Center.

Our highest priority is to ensure and protect the health and wellness of our students, their families and the community at large. Our decisions are influenced by information provided by Carthage, public officials and local health experts.

While we balance the high priority COVID-19 precautions in our community with the future collegiate needs of our young people, the Mahone Fund Board of Directors along with Carthage and the Scholarship committee will evaluate every option to ensure we fund and honor all 2020 allotted college scholarships and the Living Legend Volunteer awards in an appropriate and timely manner given this global crisis.

Reaching for Rainbows is one of Kenosha County’s premier scholarship galas. Since its inception in 1999, The Mary Lou & Arthur F. Mahone Fund has raised $1.2 million in private scholarship support for local high school students.

Event updates will be provided in the coming weeks. In the meantime if you should have any questions or need additional information please contact Tom Targos at scholarships@KenoshaFoundation.org

I want to thank everyone for their support of the Mahone Fund and wish the best of health and safety to all families during these difficult times.


Timothy T. Mahone
Chairman, Mahone Fund
