Richland Rejuvenates is a joint effort of the Capital Wealth Advisory Group Foundation and the Madison Youth Performing Arts Foundation, designed to bring together business, community and city leaders for the “purpose of making our community the ‘Center of it all.’”
In January 2016, Richland Rejuvenates hosted the fifth annual “Making A Difference” Awards Banquet.
This awards banquet was an opportunity for our community to come together and say “Thank You” to friends and neighbors who have made our community and lives better. Most of these people serve behind the scenes and would rather not be recognized. This program is not as much about making sure that we recognize them as it is a time to say thanks. When we pause and consider how we are changed or are better because of their efforts, it humbles us all . We look forward to many years to come as we stop and say Thank You for “Making A Difference” in Richland County the place we all call home.

Feeding Families - "RC Style”
Each year when fall is in the air Richland Rejuvenates and a group of business partners set out on a annual mission to change lives through the local food pantries. The goal to promote awareness but also keep the funds raised to be used here at home to make the difference in our local communities. Working through local pantries allows us to impact our neighbors who find themselves food deficit. The pantries selected are throughout Richland County including the Lone Rock Food Pantry, The Muscoda Food Pantry and the Viola Food Pantry.
Our partners including the Richland Medical Center and Richland Hospital, Schreiber Foods, Miniature Precision Components (MPC), The Richland Center Foundry, Rockwell Automation, WRCO, S& S Cycle and the Capital Wealth Advisory Group
The team looks forward to making every year successful as they work together to insure the national averages of 1 in 6 people today have some level of a struggle to maintain food security, whether that’s a proper supply or just wondering where a future meal will come. Also equally important is good nutrition for themselves and their families. This means that one of every six people we see every day of our lives could very well be struggling in some way with these real issues. Hunger exists everywhere in America. It does not matter if we live in an urban area, a suburban or in our own rural setting - hunger knows no boundaries and it exists everywhere. This is one of our basic human needs and what a great opportunity we have together.
Together we will again raise awareness and resources to truly make a difference… that’s the “RC Style” and that’s Feeding Families RC Style!
