Joe 2.0 - A Motion Picture

Experience one of the most powerful and unique bands in the world, Joe 2.0, in a one of a kind live “Motion Picture” show at the gorgeous Weill Center in Sheboygan for FREE.

Featuring the world-class vocals of original Cheap Trick lead singer, Xeno, Joe 2.0 is everything you always wanted in a band, but were afraid to ask.

Imagine an electrified string quartet, plus drums and vocals, performing the greatest rock music of all time and innovative original music in a way only they can. The world’s original “Rockestra”, Joe 2.0 works with a self-crafted, limitless palette of vintage rock and pop sounds from electric guitar, to bass, to organ and adds the might and majesty of the symphonic sound, seamlessly blending both sonic worlds into a galaxy of sights and sounds that once experienced will never be forgotten. The evening will open with the introspection infused pop of singer songwriter, William Darling. The music will come alive with a cutting edge “motion picture” stage spectacle featuring original art and video projected on to multiple giant screens in the theater.

2018 Coastal Cares Nonprofit Program
Meet Heathstone of Wisconsin

Sheboygan, WI - In October of 1995, a small group of families in the Sheboygan area were drawn together for a common concern they shared about how we as a society were caring for disabled individuals in our community. The initial focus of this group was on residential care facilities, but soon broadened its scope to include educational, employment and social opportunities for the disabled. 

HearthStone focused its efforts on providing support for self-help and advocacy for people with disabilities and their families. Its mission is to make our communities a welcoming place for people with disabilities and to support and encourage positive life experiences. Members are people with developmental and/or physical disabilities, their families, friends and people within our communities who care about them. HearthStone is funded by private donations and is an all volunteer organization. HearthStone offers assistance, guidance, advocacy and support in transition to and in perpetuation of community-based living. 

HearthStone continues to be a strong advocacy voice for the disabled in our community and throughout the state attempting to influence legislative policies that improve services and promote greater independence for individuals with disabilities.       

They are in need of board members for the 2018 year. If you are interested in learning more please contact them   here
The purpose of  Coastal Cares  is for Coastal YPN to partner with a nonprofit organization in co-creating a unique event --- an event that is tailored to the missions of each organization and provides opportunities for young professionals to serve as community stewards. 

Throughout year, we have been working integrally with the following Sheboygan County-area nonprofit organizations in hopes that by connecting to a mission that resonates, we can join with other great people, create even more ways to get involved, and truly make a difference in our community:
The Friends of the Senior Activity Center is looking to fill a few board positions.
If you have an interest in Sheboygan’s very vibrant over 50 age population, this is a unique opportunity to collaborate with the City of Sheboygan and help in sustaining the Senior Center’s members valuable quality of life. Talents we are looking for include: accounting, legal advice for a nonprofit organization, marketing and fundraising. Time commitment is 1-1.5 hours monthly Board meetings at 8 a.m., fourth Wednesday of each month, attendance at the Annual Meeting in the evening in May and occasional fundraising or small committee meetings.

It all starts with a LITTLE… and it makes a BIG difference.
It’s estimated over 5000 kids in Sheboygan County live in homes falling just above the federal poverty level. With parents struggling to provide basics like housing, food, and health care, there often isn’t time left to provide kids guidance to build healthy relationships, attend school regularly and think about the future. That’s where you come in! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sheboygan County invites you to do something BIG today and become a volunteer mentor. Visit to get started today!
