Crowning Achievements is a 501(c)(3) in Hudson, WI, serving men and women with special needs in the St. Croix Valley area of Minnesota, Wisconsin and beyond. We host fun events each month to foster confidence, independence, social skills and friendships. In encouraging these aspects as well as involvement and education in the areas we visit, we strive to create awareness and more opportunities to serve and work in these same communities.
In the fall we host a large celebration for our participants to showcase their talents, as well as a raffle of items to raise money for our program. This year we have 19 women and 5 men participating in the pageant this year with many others that are part of the monthly program as well. We will be hosting our 15th Annual Pageant and Raffle at 2 p.m. November 4 at Faith Community Church. Immediately following the pageant will be a refreshment social time which will then be followed by the raffle. This raffle is our largest fundraiser of the year and features items from local businesses in Minnesota and Wisconsin, as well as including items from the Twin Cities and nationally as well!
We are a true non-profit and 100 percent of the funds raised go back into our program to keep it cost free for our participants. We have no paid staff.
Admission to the pageant is free to get in. The doors open at 1 p.m. to view the raffle items and to purchase raffle tickets (tickets are $1 each). During this time, attendees can also meet our past royalty, current candidates, take pictures in our photo booth and see what we are all about!
