We will also celebrate some of the special and dedicated people in our community who are helping us live out NAMI Fox Valley’s mission to support and empower those affected by mental illness. We are proud to honor our 2012/13 Award Recipients for the work they are doing to offer help, hope and support to those in need.

The event is planned from 5:30 – 8 p.m. at the Grand Meridian, 2621 N. Oneida St., in Appleton. We will have refreshments and hors d’oeuvres from 5:30-6 p.m., followed by our bowl-a-thon kick-off from 6-7 p.m.

After seven annual NAMIWalks, we are excited to offer this new fall fundraiser that will use the same team-building model and offer new opportunities for supporters and sponsors to get involved and raise awareness and funds for NAMI Fox Valley. The Bowl-a-Thon is planned for Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Super Bowl in Appleton. If you are interested in starting a team, we invite you to attend!
