Hundreds of people in Santa suits and a wide variety of holiday costumes will gather in Milwaukee this Saturday for the annual "Santa Rampage". For the last five years, costumed riders pedal their bikes all over the city stopping at restaurants, bars and shops, traveling 15 to 20 miles raising money for the Wisconsin Bike Fed.

The Walkers Point Community Center will host the Coalition of Photographic Arts, an annual juried photo exhibition, featuring photographers from across the Midwest. This year's Exhibition runs December 6th through January 18th and features work from Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa.

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to Concordia University's school of nursing and education to help bring health and wellness education to people living in poverty. This spring, Concordia's Health Mobile will travel to schools in the city with high poverty rates, teaching students how to live a healthier lifestyle. 

After decades of broadcasting Wisconsin Badgers football and men's basketball games, WTMJ-AM (620) will be dropping their coverage after this season's games. WTMJ executives decided to end Badgers broadcasts when they were asked to carry all Badger programming, stating they were unable to broadcast more games due to their commitment to the Packers, Brewers and Bucks .
