Each year, COA rolls out the red carpet on Hollywood’s biggest night for its annual Hollywood Gala. This event, presented by the Marcus Corporation, the National Association of Theatre Owners of Wisconsin & Upper Michigan and Karen Ritchie Crivello raises funds to support COA’s array of family-centered programs and features a formal dinner, silent auction, and a live screening of the 91st Academy Awards. At this year’s gala, all funds raised will support COA’s life-changing programs that reach over 10,000 children and families.

The 21st Annual Hollywood Gala will be held Sunday, February 24th, at the Hilton – Milwaukee City Center (509 W Wisconsin Ave). The event itinerary follows:

5 p.m. : Cocktail Reception and Silent Auction
