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

2020 EVENT CANCELED, MAHONE FUND TO HONOR SCHOLARS WITH VIRTUAL PRESENTATION

KENOSHA, Wis. – Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, The Mary Lou & Arthur F. Mahone Fund has canceled the Reaching for Rainbows “Pursuit of Excellence” Gala scheduled for April 23 and will instead hold a virtual scholarship presentation. The virtual presentation honoring all 2020 scholarship recipients will be released later this month.

The virtual event will be a motivating and exciting premiere of the 2020 Mahone Fund CEO Scholars, giving the community a chance to hear directly from the students about their accomplishments, future goals, and aspirations.

“I'm disappointed that these deserving students will not be able to celebrate their achievements or share their success stories in person with their parents, grandparents, and the community at large,” said Tim Mahone, Chairman of the Mahone Fund.

“Reaching for Rainbows is not just a great community event celebrating academic excellence but a grand opportunity for our business and community leaders to have face time with our future leaders. You can't replace the personal connection that so many people have enjoyed and supported over the years.”

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.

“I hope Kenosha will tune in and share the presentation with their friends and family,” Mahone said.

“These scholarships reduce the financial barriers impacting college readiness, access, and affordability for our first-generation students and creates a pathway for their future success. In these very tough economic times, our financial support is even more critical for these families. I thank the Community for their generosity and continued investment for the last 21 years.”

The Mahone Fund is a component of the Kenosha Community Foundation and its mission is to provide educational opportunities for economically and academically deserving youth. The Mahone Fund also supports healthy lifestyle initiatives in communities of color.
