Event proceeds ensure our Member Groups can focus their time on what they do best – create, perform, educate and inspire. Your collected donations are returned back into the community to help keep the arts thriving in southeastern Wisconsin. Your participation means more kids learn and excel in theater, dance and music; more jobs are created, and more individuals and families come together to enjoy the arts.
