MPS Foundation honors outstanding alumni

MPS Foundation honors outstanding alumni More than 300 people gathered on October 10, 2018 to recognize outstanding alumni from Milwaukee Public Schools. Nine men and women plus a corporate partner were honored for their exemplary careers, community work, and support of Milwaukee Public Schools.

Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner at the Italian Community Center and were treated to entertainment by R&B/jazz duo B~Free & Quinten Farr, as well as the Rufus King High School Drumline. Following dessert, a set from DJ Tarik Moody of 88Nine Radio Milwaukee helped keep the celebration going.

The evening, which included a live auction, raised approximately $120,000 for students in Milwaukee Public Schools. If you missed the event and would like to donate or receive news from the MPS Foundation, visit http://www.mpsfoundation.net/Donate.htm
