Milwaukee, Wis., September 25, 2017. . . . .Marcus® Hotels & Resorts today announced it will host a “Super Chat” at The Pfister Hotel on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 for individuals participating in the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s On the Table region-wide forum.

On the Table is designed to encourage individuals on a single day to share a meal and discuss opportunities and challenges facing the community, ideas for tackling these issues and how to keep the discussions moving forward. Participants at The Pfister Hotel will join hundreds of others at locations across the four-county region of Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee hosting similar events where community residents from all ages and backgrounds come together to put real issues and solutions “on the table” and share their commitments to helping improve communities and their future.

“We are all stakeholders of our communities and we all have ideas on how we can strengthen and advance the region. The collaboration of participants and the broad ranging conversations taking place on October 17 will be a powerful way to become educated on the latest issues, listen to one another, share ideas and find ways to take action on issues affecting our communities. I encourage everyone to get involved and become a part of the solution to the many challenges our region faces,” said Marcus.

Marcus Hotels & Resorts is inviting the public to register to join a table discussion. Topics vary from Infant Mortality (Tonda Thompson) and Human Trafficking (Nancy Yarbrough) to MKE Art Market (Pamela Anderson) and Equity Begins with You (Mary Garcia-Velez). A list of 30+ table hosts, their affiliations, and their topics of discussion, as well as registration to join a table discussion at The Pfister Hotel, is available here.
