THE BIG EVENT
On Saturday, June 1, 2019, nearly 600 guests joined co-chairs Barri & Dave Drury and The Burke Family in honoring Wilson Center co-founders and Greater Milwaukee philanthropists Kate & Don Wilson as our 15th annual EDDY Award winners and Artistic Director Michael Pink and Milwaukee Ballet as our 5th annual Educational Excellence Award winners.
Thanks to all who joined us, our 2019 Big Event raised $643,400 through sponsorships, Kendra Scott Jewelry Bar, auctions, raise the paddle, and online donations that came in throughout the evening!

Endowed by Wilson Center supporters Murph and John Burke, the EDDY is presented annually by the Wilson Center 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.
