Task Force on Literacy

Harley employees supported the Northern Wisconsin Task Force on Literacy, which teaches people of any age to read.  A STAR donation to the task force was used to pay for people from Tomahawk to become tutors.

SAFE Assured

With your support, the STAR Foundation was able to purchase 500 kits for the SAFE Assured program to be used for local Tomahawk children. These identity kits provide law enforcement, within minutes of disappearance, identifying information and video of a missing child.

What is the Tomahawk Star Foundation?

The Tomahawk STAR Foundation serves the Tomahawk area by acting as a community chest for businesses and individuals by making charitable grants to community groups, clubs and non-profit organizations that contribute to the health and vitality of our area.

Tomahawk is a generous community and many of its businesses, families, and community members have found that by making a tax-deductible contribution to the STAR Foundation, they are able to support area organizations with one gift, rather than making multiple donations throughout the year. 

The Tomahawk STAR Foundation provides support to groups and/or organizations when they need it.  Since its inception in April 2004, the STAR Foundation has donated more than $400,000 to local community groups in both general and restricted contributions.

Tomahawk Community Voted for 'Best Burger in Paradise'

Plates have been cleaned, votes cast, and Tomahawk has chosen its ‘Best Burger in Paradise.’

The contest was a friendly, fundraising competition between 10 Tomahawk area restaurants. They teamed together to raise money for the STAR Foundation. Participants were able to purchase a $25 card to get a burger at each of the restaurants, plus a vote.

When the votes were tallied, it was the Pine Tree Supper Club who won a tight competition. Several of the participants said there wasn’t a bad burger in the bunch. The winner of $100 area gift certificates was Doug Williams.

The real winner, however, was the STAR Foundation. The organization serves as a central group that provides charitable donations to a variety of Tomahawk organizations. Through the Best Burger in Paradise contest, organizers were able to raise over $5,000.

A special thank you goes out to all restaurants that participated. In addition to the Pine Tree; Billy Bob’s, The Bridge Inn, Dog ‘n Suds, Happy Snapper, River’s Edge, Rodeo Saloon, Shorthorn’s, Ingman's Parkway and the Thirsty Giraffe.
