35th Annual Celebrity Waiters Dinner!

BMO Harris Bradley Center

We are still abuzz with excitement from last week’s 35th Annual Celebrity Waiters Dinner!

The question of the evening was this: What is more important than helping a child to see? Our guests answered with their paddles, raising more than $50,000 in our paddle auction to support Children’s Vision Screenings statewide. Thanks to a wonderful live auction, silent auction and more, the 35th annual dinner is expected to raise more than $110,000 to benefit our mission to prevent blindness and preserve sight. We are so grateful to all who made the 35th Annual Celebrity Waiters Dinner such a wonderful success –

• Axel, our 2015 Preschool Ambassador whose story inspires us to expand our vision screenings to help more children at risk for permanent vision loss.

• Our 2015 Community Partner Award recipient, Robert W. Baird & Co., whose associates and Foundation have individually and collectively supported children’s healthy vision from more than 20 years.

• Our Event Sponsor and Celebrity Waiters, the Milwaukee Admirals!

• Our Visionary Sponsor, Robert W. Baird; Insightful Sponsor, Walker Forge; and Focused Sponsors, Everett Smith Group, Salesforce and RFP Commercial.

• Our Celebrity Waiters Dinner Committee!

• All who attended to support children’s healthy vision
