THE BIG EVENT • SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 2019
Co-chaired by The Burke Family and Barri & Dave Drury
Save the date to join us in celebrating the power of the arts! In addition to honoring 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, 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.
Tickets for The Big Event 2019 will go on sale this winter; for sponsorship opportunities, please contact Vice President-Development Megan Huse at 262-373-5032 or email@example.com.
Check out the fun we had at last year’s Big Event!
Thanks to the support of the more than 600 Greater Milwaukee-area leaders who joined us at last year’s Big Event, we were able to raise $300,000 through sponsorships, the Kendra Scott Jewelry Bar, auctions, raise the paddle, and online donations that came in throughout the evening!
