ArtWorks for Milwaukee at the Manpower HQ

By - Nov 14th, 2011 11:21 am

Last year, ArtWorks for Milwaukee raised over $11,000 at their 3rd annual fundraiser. This year, the fundraising total increased by $5,000 and saw a dramatic jump in attendance with over 300 people attending the sold out event.

Attendees got an inside look at the impressive Manpower world headquarters, where people sampled food, custom gelato, craft beer and cocktails from the likes of Hotel Metro, Beta, Great Lakes Distillery, and Quintessential Wines. Various artwork was on display courtesy of ART Milwaukee.

Lake Effect’s Bonnie North served as emcee for the fundraiser’s live auction, which included trips to both Las Vegas and the Osthoff Resort. The trips went for $800 each, and a long line of silent auction items made up the rest of the bounty for the evening.

TCD was there for the event, so take a look at our gallery below and soak in some of the sights of this elegant evening.
