Something Big Afoot

November 29th, 2023

The big red shoe is no stranger to RMHC-Madison. Its iconic presence has been featured at golf outings and celebrations over the past several years, and now even has an event named after it, the Red Shoe Soiree.

This past September, we launched the Red Shoe Roadshow, where local businesses can help raise awareness and funds for our mission by featuring the red shoe and banner in their lobby. NCG Hospitality and Hausmann Insurance, the winners of the 2023 Golf Classic, were the first stops. Next up Elevity/Gordon Flesch and now M3 Insurance. In December, the shoe is headed to Kerry Foods in Beloit where it sets the stage for their Painting with Purpose and Wish List drive packing day.

We are grateful to these businesses for stepping up and getting creative. By encouraging their employees and clients to raise funds and in-kind donations for our families, more than $3,500 has been raised in just a few months through this endeavor!

If your business is interested in sponsoring a stop on the Red Shoe Roadshow in 2024, hosting an employee giving campaign or wish list drive yet this holiday season, please contact Deborah Still at [email protected]. Together we can provide comfort and joy all year round.

Look for a behind the scenes story on the creation of this shoe in the months ahead.
