SHEBOYGAN SERVICE CLUB
The Sheboygan Service Club is an 87-year old organization with membership of over 30 female volunteers who together donate over 1500 hours of service each year to local charities. Every November, we all work together to produce a remarkable SSC Charity Ball that includes silent and live auctions and ends with an entertaining SSC casted show. Proceeds from this event make a dramatic impact on charities within the county. SSC has donated almost one million dollars to Sheboygan County since 2013, awards 9 Scholarships annually, and exclusively develops and runs the city-wide Safety Town program for children entering Kindergarten each summer.
Last year our fundraiser grossed over $140,000, and proceeds were shared with our 2017 Partner Charity, The Family Resource Center, and 6 additional charities within Sheboygan County. This year’s Partner Charity is Mental Health America in Sheboygan County. They will directly receive 50% of the evenings net proceeds, and the other 50% will be donated to various charities through Sheboygan County. SSC has a proud history rooted in the belief that a group of women can give powerful witness to charity and social justice. We appreciate your support!
INTRODUCING OUR 2018 PARTNER CHARITY
MENTAL HEALTH AMERICA IN SHEBOYGAN COUNTY
This year’s partner charity is Mental Health America in Sheboygan County. MHA is a nonprofit mental health resource center that promotes mental wellness through education, empowerment and support.
It is no secret that today’s youth are reporting increased stress and trauma. They are also facing a number of behavioral, emotional, physical and mental health challenges. The Mindful Classroom Initiative (MCI) was developed by Mental Health America to counteract startling statistics impacting children. Did you know the following facts? In the average classroom eight students will have a diagnosable anxiety disorder by the age of 18, five students are affected by serious mental health needs, one struggles with abuse, and ten live in poverty. (Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, 2015)
Utilizing an evidence-based social-emotional curriculum throughout classrooms in Sheboygan County, trained mindful instructors teach children and educators strategies to decrease stress and
anxiety, improve sleep, and increase focus and resiliency while cultivating healthy relationships for themselves and others. Become a mental health champion and join us in supporting MHA in building hopeful and resilient communities.

Sheboygan Service Club (SSC) is no longer accepting scholarship applications for the graduating Class of 2018. Congratulations to all of the hard working and exceptional students of 2018 who submitted applications. We wish you well in your future endeavors.
SSC endeavors to foster interest in its members about the social, economic, educational, cultural and civic conditions of the county and to prepare members for continuing volunteer service within their community.
Each year SSC joyfully awards (3) well deserving high school seniors with a $1500 scholarship for exemplary work in the area of academics and community involvement.
All applicants must live in and attend school in Sheboygan County or have lived in Sheboygan County two of the four years they attended high school in Sheboygan County. All applicants must be a 2018 graduate. All complete scholarship applications must be submitted by March 16, 2018. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

SSC is now accepting applications for our 2018 Partner Charity. We invite all Sheboygan County 501(c)3 to submit an application to be this year’s Partner. Applications and all supporting documents must be received by March 31st. Follow this link to download the application:
In addition to donating our time to several important non-profit organizations in Sheboygan County, we are proud to host an annual fundraising gala each year (2018 date is 11/10/18). Proceeds from this gala are distributed to both our Partner Charity as well several other organizations through our General Funding application process. We select recipients of these funds that align with our mission to support the social, economic, educational, cultural, and civic conditions of Sheboygan County. Our Partner Charity is typically an organization seeking a sizable donation ($10K+) and one who is willing to assist in selling raffle tickets, corporate tables, and auction items to be bid on the night of the event.
In return, we enthusiastically share half of the net proceeds from the gala with our Partner Charity. The remaining half of our net proceeds are distributed to a handful of other local organizations or projects.
Our 2017 Partner Charity was the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County!
Sheboygan Service Club supports anyone in need of compassion, shelter, nourishment or education within Sheboygan County.
The Sheboygan Service Club was pleased to present a check for $62,513.55 to the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County on January 11, 2018. Family Resource Center offers their thank to SSC, and to the community, for their generosity and support. The Family Resource Center said of SSC that “Their willingness to give shows how much our community values our mission of ‘building strong families and strong communities.’” Jaime Marchi, current President of Sheboygan Service Club shares that “it is always such a rewarding experience to give that check to our partner charity. We work so hard to make our fundraiser a success, and to see the joy on their faces when they receive the money makes it all worth it!”
In addition to volunteering within the community, SSC members host one major fundraiser each year known as the Annual Charity Ball. In the past, the Sheboygan Service Club, Inc. and its Foundation have shared the proceeds from its Charity Ball with 25-50 local non-profits annually. The Sheboygan Service Club and its Foundation support anyone in need of compassion, shelter, nourishment or education within Sheboygan County. In an effort to make a larger impact in some of the local organizations and projects we support, the Sheboygan Service Club and its Foundation has for the last seven years designated half of its Charity Ball net proceeds to support one top organization or project each year; while providing the remaining half of our net proceeds to a handful of other local organizations or project and scholarships. SSC is now accepting applications for our 2018 Partner Charity and invites all Sheboygan County 501(c)3 to submit an application to be this year’s Partner. Applications and all supporting documents must be received by March 31st. Visit http://www.sheboyganserviceclub.org/charity-ball-fundraiser to retrieve a copy of the application.
2017’s annual charity ball was held on Nov. 11 at The Berkshire with over 200 people in attendance. More than $140,000 was raised that evening, one half of which was presented to a single organization, the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County, with the remainder distributed to other area charities, projects or scholarships. Sheboygan Service Club provided $10,000 each to both Mental Health America and Rainbow Kids of Sheboygan County. In addition, financial support was provided to the YMCA, Project Linus, Sheboygan Cancer Fund and Easter Seals. SSC President, Jaime Marchi says that “We truly hope that the money we raise makes a difference to the local charities we support. We are blessed to have these organizations in our community, and Sheboygan Service Club looks forward to working with them in the future.”
The theme of this year’s show was Welcome to La La Land, where the crowd was entertained with skits from an assortment of movies and shows from the early 1900s. The SSC was founded by Edith Testwuide in 1931 as a way to address the many needs of the community during the Great Depression.
The 2018 Charity Ball will be held on Saturday, November 10th, 2018 at the American Club. In addition to hosting an annual Charity Ball, SSC also offers area high school seniors the opportunity to apply for one of three $1500 scholarships awarded each year. And in the summer, SSC invites children entering kindergarten to learn the all about keeping safe at Safety Town.
