In 1906 COA began serving Milwaukee families – that same year, the very first feature film was produced. In the 110 years since, COA has helped foster thousands and thousands of dreams. Our participants might not have stars on the walk of fame, but their successes help to shape a new, better city every day. Join us on the red carpet to celebrate real rising stars here in Milwaukee and help to support quality, family-centered programming
COA’s 18th Annual Hollywood Gala will be held at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center on February 28th. A cocktail reception and the silent auction kick off at 5pm, to be followed at 7 by a gourmet, three-course meal and live presentation of the 88th Academy Awards hosted by local television personality Mark Baden. During commercial breaks you’ll learn about some of COA’s achievements in 2015, exemplary participants, and have your chance to join the mission to strengthen Milwaukee families!
Even if you can’t make it to the Gala, you can still support COA by joining in online to bid on great silent auction items during the event. Tickets to see the Packers, signed memorabilia from Wisconsin icons, locally-produced artisan crafts and foods, and behind-the-scenes access to Milwaukee attractions are just a few of things that’ll be on offer.
