The Dream Together Gala is St. Ann Center’s largest fundraiser to support the care of people of all ages and abilities who spend their day together at both of our campuses.
The event hosted at Discovery World features silent and live auctions, a fabulous dinner catered by The Bartolotta Restaurants, raffles, prizes and most importantly – stories of how you are making a difference in the lives of so many children and adults.
This year, you can make a bigger difference than ever! The 2018 Dream Together Gala will benefit people of all ages and abilities who are waiting to enroll in the brand-new units now being completed at St. Ann Center’s Bucyrus Campus.

CHANGING THE NARRATIVE.
At the age of 15, high school freshman and basketball player David Cooks experienced a spinal aneurism, leaving him a T-6 paraplegic. Refusing to let the wheelchair determine the man, he made the decision to persevere from the very beginning-and he never let go of his passion for the game. In Getting Undressed, David describes his journey to independence and purpose, and how “getting undressed” for change can pose huge challenges, literally and figuratively.
A story of inspiration and motivation. David shares his struggles and successes on and off the court-with honesty, perseverance, and faith.
At St. Ann Center, we have to keep our eye on the ball to meet the growing needs of our children, elderly, adults with disabilities and their caregivers. The annual Stu’s Flooring Benefit Golf Outing helps us do just that with the support of area businesses and golfers with a love for the game and their community.

The UPAF Ride for the Arts brings together a large community whose collective passion for the performing arts, outdoor activity and just plain fun invigorates the greater Milwaukee area spirit. As you train and fundraise throughout the year and ride across the finish line on Sunday, June 3, we remember what we’re riding for: the arts that help keep our culture vibrant, the creation of jobs, and the educational opportunities for our children. The UPAF Ride for the Arts is a recreational ride, it’s not a race. Ride at your own pace, with five routes to choose from (for every ability), which gives you even more reason to celebrate at the post-ride party.
Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin’s mission began 35 years ago with a bushel of apples and commitment from our Club.

Feeding America invites you to join them for a special evening as they honor their roots and celebrate new innovation as they continue to solve hunger.
