Professional Dimensions’ Sacagawea Awards dinner is coming up on March 8. This event honors and celebrates women who have demonstrated significant achievements in their area of professional expertise and in their commitment to the community. The 2018 award winners are Dr. Eve Hall, President and CEO of the Milwaukee Urban League and Paula Penebaker, President and CEO of the YWCA Southeast Wisconsin.
The TEMPO Milwaukee Foundation will award up to $15,000 to one or multiple recipients to cover leadership, training or other programs for established professional women who wish to take their careers to the next level. The money will be paid directly to the educational institutions. In awarding these grants, TEMPO Milwaukee is seeking to expand the impact of women in our community by advocating, elevating and accelerating women leaders. The grants are meant to both encourage leadership development and recognize women the organization believes are having or will have an impact in the community. The recipient or recipients will be notified in April 2018.
Every year, just before Christmas, a diverse group of people from the Milwaukee business community gather to distribute food, clothing, blankets and gifts to families and seniors in need across the greater Milwaukee area.
This year the Douglas F. McKey Christmas Club will deliver gifts to over 240 households, serving around 500 children and seniors…carrying on a Milwaukee tradition that began in 1917.
You can participate in this Milwaukee tradition in a variety of ways. Help shop for the children’s presents, pack food for families and seniors or wrap gifts.
On December 18th you can help distribute the gifts to families and seniors throughout Milwaukee and then join other Club members for dinner and caroling at the University Club. See our website for more details: mckeychristmasclub.org.
