We're always looking for a good excuse to throw a party for our members and supporters, and we found a fun one. Please join us as we celebrate the relocation of our MREA Milwaukee office to Escuela Verde. We'll start the evening with drinks and lively conversation then tempt our taste buds with appetizers and dishes paired with beer from Central Waters Brewing Company. It's going to be delicious! We'll complete the night with tunes from DJ Amy Heart and a raffle including Wisconsin-made liquor, a portable SunJack solar charger, and more. You just might be the lucky winner...
How can you get involved?
- Community members: Purchase tickets and join in the fun
- MKE restaurants: Donate an appetizer or dish for our beer pairing
- Business owners: Sponsor the event and promote your business to MREA Members and supporters.
