10th & Final Benefit in Memory of Jana Maegaard | Johnny'Z Pour House | Saturday, 10. June 2017

THIS IS IT! This is the LAST benefit! This will be our 10th event and after much thought and consideration we've decided this will be the last one. We hope you will join us one last time as we celebrate Jana's life and memory as we raise money to help fight cancer. Over the last 9 years we've raised over $86,000!! We would love to hit $100,000 in 2017. Whether you've been to every event since 2008 or have never come before, we would love to see you on 6/10/17. This is one day we all come together to do our part in finding a cure for this ugly disease. It's a disease that has touched most, if not all of us. On a personal note, it would mean the world to Sue, Rick and I for you to share what will be a huge day for us. We are so proud of what this event has done over the years and would love for you to help us celebrate. We promise, you will have a great time and will be doing something that will help change the lives of those benefiting from our donations.

  • Three weeks from today will be the last Jana's Journey benefit. On this day, we raise money for two great causes that were very near and dear to Jana...we come together as one big group to socialize and celebrate life because Jana knew and we all know life is too **** short...and most importantly we remember a beautiful soul who had an infectious laugh and a smile that would brighten any room, Jana Kipp Maegaard.... even though she would have hated all of the attention. (Love you Jana.) Life is about leaving a legacy.... Jana's legacy was her boys and husband, her family, her friends, her job, she lived each day with its "not about me attitude", she made sure she had a purpose in her life, she lived her life to the fullest and she had such passion for helping others.....and we ask this year, what will your legacy be? Sue Boscher Kuryanowicz, Rick Maegaard and I are so excited for this event and we cannot wait to see you all there, June 10th. If you have never come to this event, this is the time to come!! We will not disappoint! If anyone is thinking about donating a prize, please let Sue, Rick and I know, if possible, by Tuesday May 30th. We will take prizes up to the day of though😀
  • Don't forget tonight is Jana's Journey night at Texas Roadhouse in Pleasant Prairie from 3:30-10:00. The benefit will get 10% of your bill. Bring your friends and family for dinner and drinks. Play a part in helping the fight against cancer. See you all tonight!

If you still want to order, message me and I'll get you payment info. Thanks! Original post - OK everyone... Remember at last year's benefit I asked if anyone would be interested in one of our benefit t-shirts if we made them available to you? You know that saying 'better late than never'??? Well.... we finally have the shirt done and we are ready to take orders if you are interested. Shirts are $15. You can ONLY get them by messaging me (Sue K). Be sure to include your size. Also, shirt is only available in gray. I will then give you instructions on how to pay. The catch? The deadline to order AND have money to me is 5/15. I hope to see a ton of these shirts at the event on JUNE 10.
