Same Goal, Different Approach
The Longest Neighborhood Table fundraiser has always been about bringing people together to support strong families, neighborhoods, and communities through homeownership. At the heart of this effort are the families Acts serves; the dining room tables across Milwaukee, and now Beloit, where generations gather to share one of our most universal basic
pleasures: a meal shared with great company.
While a continuous, winding table with over 500 seats would have been impressive this year, in light of COVID-19, we’ve decided to change the look of our annual fundraiser. We’re calling it Longest Neighborhood Table – Home Edition.
We need your help in spreading Acts’ message across southern Wisconsin, one dining room table at a time. Longest Neighborhood Table – Home Edition will take place on Saturday, September 12, 2020, in homes from Milwaukee to Beloit, and everywhere in between. Our call-to-action is for all of the generous supporters and champions of Acts to come together, no matter where we gather, to continue this important mission of empowerment through homeownership.
Setting the Table
We understand that with so many unknown factors, it can be difficult to plan ahead. So, we’ve imagined a variety of scenarios that allow our supporters to choose how they’d like to get involved in the Longest Neighborhood Table.
Sponsor a table
For those interested in “sponsoring a table” with a donation of $3,000, $6,000, or $10,000 – we’ll bring the event to your home with catering, beverages, decor, and some special goodies for your family and/or guests. (We’ll work with these hosts individually to identify how many people will be attending).
Be our host
Don’t worry, hosting doesn’t require a sponsorship investment. If you’d like to host an event and share the Acts story with others, all you need to do is confirm your household. We’ll share planning tips and ways to support Acts virtually – you provide the meal, beverages, and guests!
Host on your own
If you’re more comfortable with just your own family/household, that’s okay, too! You can still become a confirmed host, plan a family meal, and participate with us virtually the night of the event.
No matter where we gather, we’re confident that the Acts community will show up, and share their passion and support for this mission.
Featured Caterers & Molson Coors Beverage Pairings
We’re excited to offer our Sponsors some mouth-watering catering options, and hope that everyone who participates will consider supporting local businesses when planning for their “Home Edition.”

Q: Will all of the Home Edition events take place on September 12?
A: We’re trying to schedule all of the Home Edition events on September 12, but if you’re out of town and would like to host on a different date, we can accommodate you!
Q: Do my guests have to purchase a ticket to come to my house?
A: No. While there will be a $150 ticket option for those who’d like to support Acts that way, there is no required fee to participate. There will be lots of opportunities to give via the fund-a-cause app leading up to and during the event.
Q: How does the virtual component of the event work?
A: We ask that you stream a 15-minute virtual program on
YouTube during your event, and provide emails and cell phone numbers of your guests so we can engage them on the Givesmart app.
