MILWAUKEE, WI – January 29, 2014- Historic Milwaukee, Inc. will honor John Gurda and Sunset Investors at its annual fundraising dinner Remarkable Milwaukee on Thursday, February 27, 2014 at 5 p.m. in the historic Pritzlaff Building located at 311 N Plankinton Ave.

As a highly accomplished Milwaukee historian, John Gurda is a worthy receiver of the title Remarkable Milwaukeean. Gurda has written 19 books on Milwaukee’s history including the ambitious Making of Milwaukee book. With Historic Milwaukee, Inc.’s partnership, Gurda is in the midst of his newest book Milwaukee: City of Neighborhoods. This book is expected to be published in fall of 2014, and will spotlight nearly forty Milwaukee neighborhoods, charting the history of each and describing its contemporary character as well.

Historic Milwaukee is also thrilled to honor Sunset Investors for the incredible restoration work they have done and continue to do on the Pritzlaff building. In 2005, the 1875 building was purchased by Kendall Breunig/Sunset Investors. The building has since undergone an ambitious restoration from top to bottom.

Historic Milwaukee, Inc. invites the public for an evening of tours of the Pritzlaff; a program including remarks by honorees John Gurda and Kendall Breunig; and a silent auction and dinner. Valet parking is available for attendees.

Tickets for the event are $85 for Historic Milwaukee members and $100 for non-members. There are also table sponsorship opportunities for parties of 8. Additional information on the event and ticketing can be found at historicmilwaukee.org.
