Collector car hobby brings people together to support worthwhile causes

While the Milwaukee Masterpiece celebrates automotive art and beauty and brings together collectors and spectators from throughout the Midwest and beyond, the true driving force behind the weekend of activities that comprise the Masterpiece is the opportunity to raise funds for nonprofit organizations that improve the quality of life in the greater Milwaukee area.

“The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin is pleased to be chosen as a beneficiary of the 2015 Milwaukee Masterpiece,” said Renée Logee, director of development, Autism Society Southeastern Wisconsin “The gift received from your generous support at the Masterpiece in 2014 was instrumental in helping us fulfill our mission of improving the lives of all that are affected by autism. In 2014, we were able to reach a record number of children and adults on the spectrum with new programs and services all because of your kindness and caring. We look forward to another great year.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee provides safety, academic support, free meals and role models to more than 43,000 children and teens each year at 44 locations, all for a fee of $5 annually,” said Vincent Lyles, president & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. ”With both afterschool and summer programs available to youth aged 4 to 18, Boys & Girls Clubs is a critical resource for the thousands of families it serves. Funding from the Milwaukee Masterpiece and other generous donors helps to make this resource possible. We look forward to the weekend-long Milwaukee Masterpiece activities Aug. 22 – 23, in Veterans Park.”

Meta House is thrilled to be invited back as a charitable partner for the Milwaukee Masterpiece in 2015,” said Sarah Pollack, partnerships and communications manager, Meta House, Inc. “As a charitable partner of last year’s event, the Masterpiece generously donated $12,500 to our agency, an organization that ends the generational cycle of addiction by healing women and strengthening families. This support helped us to serve over 500 of our community’s most vulnerable women and their children in 2014. Many of these women enter Meta House impoverished, homeless and without hope for a bright future. When they complete treatment, they were empowered to be contributing members of our community and live a fulfilling life. We’re so very grateful for the many opportunities that the Milwaukee Masterpiece gives to families in Milwaukee. Together, we make an incredible impact – thank you for being part of this life-changing work by joining us on Aug. 22 and 23.”
