Dream Together Gala

  • Discovery World 500 North Harbor Drive Milwaukee, WI, 53202 United States (map)

St. Ann Center started as a dream 34 years ago and has become a life-changing reality. The Annual Gala, our largest fundraising event, allows us to keep dreaming up more creative ways to serve children, the elderly and adults with disabilities throughout Milwaukee and beyond. This year, our 13th Gala celebrates our shared dreams. It may be the dream of children learning to accept and appreciate elders…or of older adults finding a renewed sense of purpose through interactions with energetic kids. They are all a part of our dream as we grow a joyful intergenerational community where everyone is valued…and no one feels alone. Join us for an evening of good company and community with cocktails, dinner, silent and live auctions, and amazing stories of the people whose lives we touch, thanks to you.

The Gala, first held in 2005, is an annual event hosted by Carol Nevins Cannon and Craig and Susie Nevins in honor of their mother, Florence Nevins, and her devotion to St. Ann Center. All funds raised at the even support the Care Champions program that directly benefits our youth, adults, frail elderly and people with disabilities who have no means to pay for services they desperately need.

The exciting evening features:

- One-of-a-kind jewelry designed and handcrafted by Sr. Edna Lonergan, president of St. Ann Center
- Live and silent auctions
- A catered dinner by The Bartolotta Restaurants
- Entertainment by SistaStrings
- Updates on St. Ann Center programs and dreams-in-the-making that enable us to care for all ages and abilities in our community
