THE EVENT :
Kapco, Medix and a number of generous partners are pleased to present the 9th annual Grand Slam Charity Jam that will benefit Camp Hometown Heroes, Camp Reunite and other important programs for children facing trauma. This year’s headliner is the Village People featuring original lead singer Victor Willis! The event features a cocktail party, silent and live auctions with an astonishing 200 items, scrumptious buffet dinner from Ferrante’s, Afterparty and more. The Grand Slam Charity Jam is truly a great party with a purpose!
WHEN & WHERE:
The Grand Slam Charity Jam will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2019 in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We are grateful to our hosts who contributed the venues for our event. All of the festivities take place in the same building – The Milwaukee Center at 111 E. Kilbourn Avenue, Milwaukee. The event starts at 5:00 pm with a hosted cocktail reception and buffet dinner in the Milwaukee Center Galleria and the beautiful offices of Associated Bank Wealth Management Group. The Pabst Theater will host the Village People concert as well as a charity presentation and live auction. Following the concert, an Afterparty will take place outside the Stackner Cabaret on the second floor of The Milwaukee Center.
This year, we are raising funds for Camp Hometown Heroes, a free week-long summer camp for children who lost a parent or sibling through service in the U.S. Military. These children made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Camp Hometown Heroes provides them with restored hope and healing. In addition, with a recent 15 year lease at the beautiful Turning Rivers camp facility north of Milwaukee, funds will be utilized for new programs including Camp Reunite, a groundbreaking program for children who have an incarcerated parent.
