Welcome to the home page of the Madison Youth Performing Arts Foundation!
The Madison Youth Performing Arts Foundation actually has three distinct parts. MYPAF itself is fully focused on the Greater Madison, WI area.
Richland Rejuvenates is a separate arm that focuses on the Greater Richland Center, WI area.
Rockton Rejuvenescence is another branch that focuses on the Greater Rockton, IL area, including Rockford, IL.
Richland Rejuvenates just completed its Feeding America-RC Style food drive for the Richland Community Food Pantry. The awards luncheon will be on December 12. They are also in the midst of the second annual Making A Difference awards banquet. This is happening on January 20, 2013.
Our involvement in some of the major music and youth festivals and activities has been extremely fulfilling. It aligns perfectly with our mission of creating performance and fundraising opportunities for youth and performing arts groups in the greater Madison Wisconsin area.
Our thanks to the Capital Wealth Advisory Group Foundation for sponsoring the Brat Fest Music Taxis, along with Vetesnik Power Sports.The Capital Wealth Advisory Group also stepped up in 2012 and is sponsoring the MetCafe' stage at Brat Fest. Thank you for your community support.
In Richland Center, we played a major role in the July 4 celebration, Thunder In The Hills, launching Caring Karts – Churnin’ Dust, a charity go-kart race. Churnin’ Dust has expanded to the Madison area in 2012 and will be expanding to Rockton in 2013. Joining us this year are our very special musical guests, the Taalbi Brothers and the fabulous rock group that swept the MAMAs awards this year, Sexy Ester.
Caring Karts happened on June 30, 2012 at Krouskup Park in Richland Center. Dry weather cancelled the fireworks, but the RC ThunderFest had a magnificent first year.
Smoking Karts came to Miller and Sons Supermarket in Verona in 2012 on August 25. Our very special guests, the Buck Neck-ed band, were with us on June 10 at the driving demonstrations, but on August 25 we had 5th Gear, the top 40 country band. Thank you for joining us. Smoking Karts is part of Churnin' Dust - The Series.
In 2012, we brought the PiTri Challenge to Richland Center, a triathlon featuring pedaling, paddling and running. We will also held a Pie-Athlon for family and friends of the Triathlon.
If you would like to help our Foundation do its work, you can get a signed limited edition print of Jeff Koehn's spectacular piece of collectible art titled "Red Zone". Since our Foundation is located in Madison, Wisconsin, art work featuring the UW-Wisconsin Badgers about to score from the 'red zone' is a natural tie-in. (Plus Jeff is a Wisconsin native.)
The Office of Trademark Licensing at the UW-Wisconsin Athletic Department has granted us permission to create these prints as a charitable fundraiser.
'Red Zone' is an exciting piece depicting the Wisconsin Badger football team in historic Camp Randall. The sun is setting as the Badgers storm the end zone, capping a memorable day for 88,000 plus loyal Badger Backers.
You will want to own this magnificent piece.
To learn how you can get your limited edition print, click on Jeff's painting or here 'Red Zone ' .
Also, you can now own a signed limited edition print of Jeff Koehn's Madison Magic. 100% of these proceeds go to support our work.
