THE BIG EVENT • SATURDAY, JUNE 2, 2018
Co-chaired by Linda & Greg Marcus and Faye & Rick Wetzel
Celebrate the power of the arts to change lives! Join us as we recognize Milwaukee philanthropists and business leaders Allan H. (Bud) and Suzanne Selig as the 2018 EDDY Award Recipients. Endowed by Murph and John Burke, the EDDY Award is presented annually by the Wilson Center to an arts organization, corporation, or individual(s) whose commitment to regional collaboration has created a higher standard of excellence in arts and education. Also, we will be presenting an Educational Excellence Award to the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Arts in Education (ACE) Program in recognition of their high-quality educational programs.
Proceeds raised from The Big Event support the Wilson Center’s educational programming serving thousands of students every year.
