On March 12, 2016, Crop for a Cause celebrated our 10th Anniversary.  “To see the faces of people who have been coming to the Super Crop 10YEAR_WITHCOLORfor 10 years, some of whom did not even know what MS was back then, was overwhelming. You support Crop for a Cause with such passion.” Says founder, Laura Machonis, “It literally brought me to tears. This fight- has now become YOUR FIGHT…it overwhelmed me! YOU overwhelm me!”

A video was presented at the Super Crop paying tribute to our tenth anniversary. See the video here.

Thanks to the generosity of everyone who attended, we were able to raise $19,283.10 for the National MS Society in our fight to ‘make MS a Memory!’

Why We Do This

Working as a team, our 100% volunteer group is dedicated to raising funds for the National MS Society. Through craft events, we create an enjoyable and social environment for our participants who so generously continue to support our organization and attend our events.

Founded by Laura Machonis, “Crop for a Cause” began as an idea which combined the hobby of scrapbooking that she loves with fundraising for the disease she has. Diagnosed with MS in 1997, Laura began volunteering for the Chicago area MS Walk. In 2007, she created “Crop for a Cause” and leads the #1 team (140+ strong) each year at the MS Walk.
