While Hollywood’s brightest stars are honored at this year’s 90th Annual Academy Awards, COA will also be honoring the stars who support Milwaukee’s children and families. Join us at our 20th Annual Hollywood Gala for a night to celebrate our successes and supporters, and watch a live screening of the Academy Awards. Since 1906, COA has served thousands of Milwaukee families with an array of life-changing programs.
COA’s 20th Annual Hollywood Gala will be held at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center on Sunday, March 4th. A cocktail reception and silent auction kick off at 5pm, to be followed at 7pm by a gourmet, three-course meal and a live presentation of the 90th Academy Awards. During commercial breaks you’ll learn about COA’s exciting achievements in 2017, our stand-out participants, and you’ll have chances to join our mission to strengthen Milwaukee families! At this year’s gala, all funds raised will support COA’s programs that reach over 10,000 children and 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. Spa treatments, a four-night vacation to Cancun, a South African safari tour, a luxury cruise, locally-produced crafts and foods, gift cards to local restaurants and businesses, and behind-the- scenes access to Milwaukee attractions are just a sample of the things we will have on offer.
Special thanks to our 2018 Hollywood Gala Co-chairs, Lina & Sandy Cicero and Kim & Daryl Lueck and to all of the other committee members making this glamorous night possible. Visit our Hollywood Gala page to learn more and order tickets.
