Thank you to all of our 2017 Walk MS Team Members for another great turnout. Look back here soon for photos and fundraising results.

March Madness Crop
Well, it was one 12-hour craft event packed with loads of fun, relaxation, goodies, bargain bins and great raffle prizes. Look back here for more result details and photographs. Thank you to everyone who attended and volunteered.

Cabaret for a Cause
Our first concert event was an overwhelming success. Everyone had a great time and people are still raving about the show Allan_Melissaput on by singer/actress Melissa Barber and her pianist Andrew Blendermann. Cabaret for a Cause presented a wide variety of musical genres and got the entire audience in on the act. Some more than others…check out the pictures. Thank you to all of our terrific volunteers and auction donors. And a big shout out to our Angel Sponsors Holistic Art Studio, Total Event Resources and The Business Press, and Venue Sponsor Durty Nellie’s. We raised just over $3000 thanks to the generosity of our awesome audience. Thanks for helping us make MS a memory with this new Crop for a Cause event.


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.
