Thank you to those who attended our latest Paint and Sip event at Pino's Palette. Once again all tickets were sold out and we raised more funds for our future building! It's always a blast at this favored fundraising event. 

The Neenah/Menasha Fire Department recently hosted a car safety and maintenance class for some of the youth Be the Magic is helping to shape the lives of. A survey we conducted with the youth revealed that these young women want to to better their lives, but do not have the resources to do so. This is where Be the Magic is ready to step in. Basic fundamentals like car maintenance, opening a bank account, and preparing meals are just some of the functions we will guide our patrons through.
