"Crafting for a Cause" Fundraising Event

Stevens Point, WI — Hundreds showed up in an outpouring of support for ninth-grader Pax Robinson, the 2017 recipient of “Crafting for a Cause” — an annual fundraising event held on Dec. 6.  In 2010, a group of Stevens Point school alumni gathered to put together a small holiday craft show. However, before the show, one of the mothers had to rush her daughter to the hospital after becoming ill. Jill Nemeth’s daughter, Hope, was soon diagnosed with Meningitis and Encephalitis — and a lengthy hospital stay followed.  What also soon followed was the idea to make the craft show into a fundraiser, and they haven’t looked back, since.
