St. Ann Center’s Gala Lights Up Deer District

Guests to celebrate in person and virtually.

St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care will host its 17th Annual Hybrid Dream Together Gala on Friday, Aug. 13, at Gather at Deer District, 333 W. Juneau Ave. The Gala is the center’s largest fundraising event in support of the world-renowned day care program, serving children, older adults and people with disabilities all in the same home-like setting.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m., when guests gather for a cocktail hour and silent auction in the unique event space, overlooking Fiserv Forum and the plaza. The evening features dinner catered by Levy Restaurants. Showcased in the live auction are Giannis Antetokounmpo autographed collectibles, a Milwaukee Brewers Suite, Green Bay Packers boxed seats with transportation, winter getaways in Arizona, dinner at the chef’s table at Lake Park Bistro and more.

New this year, the Gala will feature a livestreamed program, plus special content for guests who attend the event virtually. Silent auction items can also be bid on by the general public online beginning Aug. 11. The online auction site can be found at aesbid.com/ELP/STANN21.

All proceeds from the gala support St. Ann Center’s Care Champions program, which directly benefits youth, frail elders and adults with disabilities who have no means to pay for services they desperately need. The gala will also honor St. Ann Center supporters, the Care Champions who make these services possible. From whirlpool baths and physical therapy to art and music therapy, adult day services promote independence and a sense of purpose.  Youngsters in St. Ann Center’s early childhood education program learn to respect and appreciate the adult clients as they join them for intergenerational activities on a daily basis.

Media is asked to check in at the registration table inside Gather. Visit stanncenter.org/gala for more information.  Questions about the gala and other ways to support St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care can be directed to Chris Fabbri at (414) 369-9024 or cfabbri@stanncenter.org.
