United Way of Greater Milwaukee’s 2010 Campaign Kicks Off at Miller Park

Last Thursday, United Way of Greater Milwaukee (UWGM) held its Community Campaign Kickoff at Miller Park to announce its fundraising goal for 2010.

The Milwaukee Brewers and MillerCoors were sponsors for the event and Brewers Executive Vice President of Business Operations, Rick Schlesinger and Tom Cardella, President & CEO-Craft & Import Division for MillerCoors welcomed the crowd of over 500 people that had turned out to hear what this year’s goal would be.

Fittingly, the event began with the national anthem, sung by 11th-grade student, Imani Agara, who is a participant in the United Way-funded Teen Achievers program at the YMCA of Greater Milwaukee.

 

Last year, 100 percent (206) of program participants graduated from high school and went on to postsecondary education. United Way of Greater Milwaukee invests over $5 million each year in successful youth development programs, like Teen Achievers.
