Project Description

COA is rolling out the red carpet for our 21st Annual Hollywood Gala!

While Hollywood’s brightest stars are honored at this year’s 91st Annual Academy Awards, COA will also honor the stars that support Milwaukee’s children and families. Join us at our 21st Annual Hollywood Gala for a night to celebrate our successes, honor our supporters, and watch a live screening of the Academy Awards.

COA’s 21st Annual Hollywood Gala will be held at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center (509 W Wisconsin Ave) on Sunday, February 24th. A cocktail reception and silent auction kick off at 5pm, to be followed at 7pm by a gourmet meal and a live presentation of the 91st Academy Awards. During commercial breaks you’ll learn about COA’s exciting achievements in 2018, our stand-out participants, and you’ll have chances to join our mission to strengthen Milwaukee! At this year’s gala, all funds raised will support COA’s programs that reach over 10,000 children and families each year.

Even if you can’t make it to the Gala, you can still support COA by joining in online to bid on exciting silent auction items during the event. Locally-produced crafts and foods, gift cards to local restaurants, spa treatments, excursions, and all-star access to Milwaukee attractions are just a sample of the items we will have on offer! Get early auction updates by registering online today at!

Special thanks to our 2019 Hollywood Gala Co-chairs, Karen Ritchie Crivello and Nancy Farino, and to all of the other committee members making this glamorous night possible. Visit our Hollywood Gala page to learn more and order tickets:

This year’s Oscar Nominees for Best Picture will be announced on January 22nd!
