Milwaukee, Wis. (November 17, 2020) – Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers will be roasting Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist and distinguished fellow in public policy and law at Marquette University Law School, Mike Gousha, at its 2020 Roast. Hosted by Jordan Lee of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, the virtual fundraising event benefitting Sixteenth Street and honoring Mike Gousha will be on Tuesday, December 8 at 7:00 pm.

Mike will be roasted by Lance Allan, Anchor, TMJ4; Mark Baden, Chief Meteorologist, WISN; Joan Prince, Vice Chancellor, UWM; Maria Monreal-Cameron, Past President and CEO, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin; and, Linda Marcus, Co-curator and Creative Director, Saint Kate Arts Hotel.

“We are proud to recognize Mike Gousha and all he has done for the Milwaukee community,” said Dr. Julie Schuller, President and CEO of Sixteenth Street. “Not only is Mike a Milwaukee legend, but he has been a great supporter of Sixteenth Street. Coming together for this year’s Roast will be a celebration of the good people and hard work that persists during these unprecedented times.”

The event will also feature Steve “The Homer” True, surprise cameos, local musical guests Browns Crew, B-Free, and Tres Acústico, and more. Sixteenth Street will also auction off a few highly sought-after items.

“I’m honored to be a part of this year’s virtual Roast.  Sixteenth Street does such good, important work in Milwaukee. It makes us better,” said Mike Gousha.  I hope everyone will join us for a few laughs at my expense, but more important, to support this great cause.

Funds raised at the Roast will work directly to expand access to health care and improve the health and wellness of Milwaukee’s south side — one of our city’s most medically underserved communities. As the only source of health care for the vulnerable population it serves, Sixteenth Street breaks down barriers to care by bringing quality medical and behavioral health care into communities most in need and collaborating with community partners to improve the environment where its patients live, learn, work, and play.

Registration is free with donations encouraged. Please click here for more information, registration, and a look at the auction items.
