The Big Event 2017

Co-Chaired by Beth & Tim Wnuk and Jessica & Matt Zeratsky

Celebrate the power of the arts to change lives at our premier fundraising event! The Big Event serves as the major channel through which the Wilson Center raises funds for its arts education programs that impact the lives of more than 9,000 students from throughout Southeast Wisconsin each year. Tickets will include a pre-show party featuring an open top-shelf bar, hand-passed hors d’oeuvres, and food stations; voice auctions; an exclusive concert featuring "The Shindig!" with Chestor Gregory, star of the Broadway hit Motown the Musical; and a post-party.

We will also honor Milwaukee philanthropists Claire and Glen Hackmann as they receive the 13th annual EDDY Award, which is endowed by Murph and John Burke, for their commitment to and leadership within our arts community. We are also excited to announce that Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra will receive the third annual Educational Excellence Award in recognition of their nationally renowned youth orchestra programs.
