BMO Harris Will Back Ballet
The ballet's new corporate sponsor makes its first major gift to Milwaukee since buying out M&I Bank.
In its first major corporate benefaction since it took over the M&I Bank, BMO Harris announced on Wednesday that it would provide major sponsorship of the Milwaukee Ballet’s “Nutcracker,” a longtime staple of the Milwaukee holiday cultural scene. The announcement was made at Red Arrow Park, across the street from the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, where the 43rd annual season of the ballet will take place December 14th – 27th, 2013.
At the event, organized by Mueller Communications, boss H. Carl Mueller chatted with Pink and Kara Kaiser, the regional president of BMO Harris Bank who made the announcement. Several dozen other folks strolled through the space while young students dressed in costume handed out candy canes (“it’s not too early to think about snow,” Pink said) and 2-for-1 vouchers for the ballet. The ballet also offers a buy-one-get-one-half-off promotion from September 9th-11th.
