2014 REVERSE DRAW RAFFLE

rever-draw-header

What a wonderful night it was!!!

We had it all…Incredible food, Great Music, Sager Bomb Cocktails, oh, and a couple hundred people watching to see if they won $5000!

In the end, it came down to the final two: Roxanne Schramm and Nheena Ittner… would they hold out, or split the pot?

Both were gracious and agreed to do whatever the other wanted (how cool, and how very U.P.)

So, split they did! Each with $2500 to their name, Roxanne donated $500 back and Nheena (on the phone) pledged her continued support for Beacon House with free guest passes for the Children’s Museum for our guests!

Ben Sager, with many, many, many tickets in the Rebound Bowl, drew The Dream Team ticket for the $1000 prize, and turned it right back over toward the 2015 UP Celebrity Golf Classic!

So many people to thank (starting with Jesse Schramm and his 50/50 ticket selling daughter Makayla) for such a wonderful evening for Beacon House… More to come when photos by pinc are posted soon!

  Walt Kyle Mile Walk & The Dash 5k Run

in memory of Kristen O’Halloran

Saturday, September 13, 2014

Sponsored by River Valley Bank

 

 

“My daughter, Kristen, lost her battle with this dreaded disease. Much like Walt, she battled the disease more than once. Unfortunately she didn’t win, but she, like Walt, inspired so many people. She has passed a baton onto all of us. We have to continue to give hope an support to all those who fight. This is why we initiated “The Dash” a memorial fund to support a cause like this.”

Receiving Grace


It seems like it’s always snowing in the Keweenaw, and our trip to Houghton on the night of March 20th was no exception. Schools had been closed, and streets were piled high with the latest layer of winter, but our group of Beacon House “Ambassadors” could not be deterred. We had a mission. We were twelve in all, and we boarded our luxury bus, compliments of Checker Limo Service, and prepared ourselves for a blustery ride.

This is the pillow that rests the head of a weary neighbor staying at Beacon House, while…

He is being treated for cancer.

Her premature baby fights for life in the NICU.

He recovers from a limb amputation.

Her father undergoes major heart surgery.

He waits to hear if there is hope.

She waits for the Lord to take him.

He searches for answers.

In Memory of Mr. Ray Mariucci

The Mariucci Family has honored us at Beacon House by directing memorials for their father, Ray Mariucci to us. We are so grateful for their continued generosity toward us, especially in their sorrow and loss.

We learned that Mr. Mariucci showed his children how to act philanthropically through his actions all of his life. He has left quite a legacy, and we are so proud to have met him. Please join us in thanking his family for carrying on his effort to leave the world a better place than he found it.

A Great Man, Remembered.

There are good people in every community, and Marquette is no exception. All year long people make donations to Beacon House that have never stayed, nor will ever stay here. But they believe in the importance of supporting their neighbors in time of need. Clark Lambros and Michele Butler were, and are those kind of people.
