MADISON, Wis. - Join Goodman CEO Letesha Nelson, local leaders, youth and neighbors as the Goodman Community Center celebrates kindness in the community through an evening of storytelling.
At the Goodman Community Center, they are lucky to witness acts of goodness every day, and they want you to get a little snippet of what they see. They plan to shine a light on the kindness with an evening of storytelling on Thursday, April 27.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program will begin around 7 p.m. Hors d'oeuvres will be provided, and there will be a cash bar available. All are welcome to attend, so they’ve created a range of ticket price options, including free. All tickets gain the same access to the event.
Be the Good: Celebrating Kindness in Our Community will take place in the Goodman Center Brassworks building at 214 Waubesa St.
If you can't make it to the event, you can still make a donation to support goodness and Goodman.

What is your favorite part about living in Madison? I love its diversity. The people are so accepting. There is also so much to do and see!
What is the biggest news story that you’ve covered? When I worked in Omaha, my photographer and I chased severe storms in southwest Iowa. We were the first ones on scene of a home destroyed by a tornado as the family came out of their shelter. We captured it all on live television. We even beat emergency crews there.
What do you like to do in your spare time? I’m a certified yoga teacher so I love spending time on the mat. I also enjoy spending time exploring outdoors.
What is your favorite kind of ice cream? Butter Brickle is my everything!
What is your favorite place to vacation? I love cruising in the Caribbean.
Who is your hero and why? My Grandma Peg Shaw is my hero. She is the kindest and most humble person I know. She puts others first and never complains about anything.
What is your favorite sport to play or watch? I grew up in a big hockey family in Minnesota. I played all the way through high School.
What is your favorite tradition around the holidays? I love spending time with family. I’m lucky enough to live and work close to home so getting together with my family is still pretty easy to do.
What is your favorite song of all time? I’m a big fan of The Chainsmokers. It would probably come down to “Closer,” “Something Just Like This,” or “Paris.”
What is your favorite movie of all time? Miracle on Ice.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received? The best piece of advice I’ve ever received is to stay positive. There are many time in life we go through rough patches, but staying positive and looking forward always helps me overcome obstacles.
If you could relive any moment, what would that be? If I could relive any moment, I think it would be the first time I experienced live television as a reporter down the road in Eau Claire. I remember how nervous I was thinking I’d screw up. When I look back, I realize it was no big deal.
