Forward! Campaign Launch in Milwaukee
The Wisconsin Historical Foundation will publicly launch Forward! The Campaign for the Wisconsin Historical Society in spectacular fashion at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee on Thursday, June 16. Join us for an evening that promises to intrigue, enlighten and inspire. The event will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 pm. Dinner will follow with special remarks from Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historian and bestselling author Doris Kearns Goodwin
. Her close friend, Allan H. "Bud" Selig Jr., commissioner of Major League Baseball, will have the honor of introducing Goodwin. Dessert and a special viewing of some rare treasures from the Wisconsin Historical Society's collections will conclude the evening.
This event is part of a statewide effort to inspire the broadest community possible to take a more active role in discovering and appreciating their history — and to champion these efforts as the largest group of members, donors, advocates, volunteers and leaders in the Society's history.
