The Mary Lou and Arthur F. Mahone Fund was created in 1999 to perpetuate the legacy of two dynamic change agents. While possessing different leadership styles, both Mary Lou and Arthur were the most influential couple advocating for social justice in Kenosha. They were married 51 years and raised nine children.
CEO is the primary initiative of the Mahone Fund, where we focus on the professional development of our next generation, along with the relationship between academic achievements, career planning and community service. In addition to matching low-to-moderate income youth with a business mentor, we offer a variety of academic CEO Scholarship opportunities to local graduating high school seniors, as a way to help make a college education more accessible within our communities of color.
Supporting healthy lifestyle initiatives and embracing diversity within our communities is a major part of our mission. We work continuously alongside our sponsors, volunteers and community members in order to host fundraisers that directly benefit the Mahone Fund CEO initiative and help us to present our annual academic scholarship opportunities. Our community outreach efforts include PowerUp: College & Resource Fair, Lincoln Park Live! Music Series, HarborPark Jazz, Rhythm & Blues Festival and Reaching for Rainbows: Pursuit of Excellence Gala.
