the signature fundraising event for catalpa health

In 2017, we popped up atop a parking garage for a Havana Night.

In 2018, we transformed a former paper mill into a Tokyo-inspired cityscape.

In 2019, characters from the "Where the Wild Things Are" book emerged with more than 350 guests at the former George Banta Publishing Company warehouse in Menasha, WI; raising more than $213,000

to support the kids and families we serve. 


Where will we pop up in 2020? 

We can't tell you yet. 

But save the dates for

September 11-12, 2020 to find out!

We thank you on behalf of our Catalpa kids and families, and our Pop! Committee led by co-chairs Amy Hansen and Marissa Downs.

Pop! 2020


September 11 - 12, 2020

We're excited to bring Pop! to you this year in a safe way - all while supporting local kiddos and families in need of mental health services. 

Stay tuned for updates to learn more in the coming month!




Tell Me More




One in every five kids is affected by a mental health disorder. Catalpa Health is a non-profit mental health clinic formed in 2012 to improve the mental health and well-being of kids and families.  We're here to serve kids ages birth-18 through clinical therapy, psychology, and psychiatry services.


Over the last year we've served nearly 9,000 kids throughout clinics in Appleton, Oshkosh and Waupaca and 50 schools within Northeast Wisconsin. 

As schools closed in response to the COVID19 pandemic, we also closed all Catalpa Health physical locations and suspended in-person therapy sessions for the safety of kids and families who walk through our doors every day and our team members. We made the transition of mental health services (including therapy and psychiatry/medication management) to telehealth (video and audio) for existing client families, and for those newly looking for somewhere to turn.

Now, all kids and families have access to effective clinical care right where they are. Same week virtual appointments are available by calling 920.750.7000.


Our signature fundraiser pops-up in an unexpected location each year with a brand new theme and inspiration. Hints at the theme and location are unveiled leading up to the event. Each year means an unexpected new location and a brand new theme, for the same important cause.


We can't wait to wow you again in 2020 - all to raise funds to improve the mental health and wellness of our kiddos and families.
