CRASH THE PARTY • SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 2019
Emerging leaders are invited to "crash" our celebration of the arts as we honor Wilson Center co-founders and Greater Milwaukee philanthropists Kate and Don Wilson as our 15th annual EDDY Award winners and the Milwaukee Ballet and Artistic Director Michael Pink as our 5th annual Educational Excellence Award winners!
Co-Chaired by The Burke Family and Barri & Dave Drury, this all-inclusive evening will feature a pre-party with entertainment, arts experiences, cocktails, and small plates; voice auctions; and a post-party with music, dancing, late-night food, cocktails, and more.
Endowed by Wilson Center supporters Murph and John Burke, the EDDY is presented annually by the Wilson Center’s Bridge Committee to an arts organization, corporation, or individual(s) whose commitment to regional collaboration has created a higher standard of excellence in arts and education. The Educational Excellence Award recognizes organizational achievement of a nonprofit that exemplifies collaboration in the arts.
Check out the fun we had at this year’s Big Event!
Thanks to you, we raised $643,400 through sponsorships, Kendra Scott Jewelry Bar, auctions, raise the paddle, and online donations that came in throughout the evening!
