WGirls have fun raising serious money for Milwaukee non-profits

The young professional community in Milwaukee is booming and there's a group of young women looking to give back to the city they call home.


WGirls Milwaukee raises money for local non-profits that provide services to women and children. They volunteer at these organizations throughout the year trying to raise awareness among their peers for these non-profits in need.


"We have fun while giving back," says Rachael Hughes, President of WGirls Milwaukee. "There's a lot going on in Milwaukee, so I think we just figured out the right formula to get people engaged. It's a win-win."


Their latest fundraiser, a Bachelor/Bachelorette auction pulled in the most money they have raised at an event so far. Through this fun night of auctioning Milwaukee's "most eligible singles", WGirls Milwaukee raised $30,000 for Penfield Childrens Center.

WGirls is a national organization that started in New York City. Learn more about them at Interested in becoming a member of WGirls Milwaukee or starting your own chapter? Information online  here and on their Facebook page.
