(MILWAUKEE) – BMO Harris Bank proudly presents the inaugural Red Hot Summer Night event to benefit the American Heart Association. The night will feature quite an interesting lineup. Warren Wiegratz and his jazz trio, Vivo will be providing music indoors and outdoors throughout the evening. Local artist Jeff Darrow will be creating a live painting during the event, which guests will have the opportunity to bid on. Plus, everyone will have the chance to sample small plate hors d’ oeuvres from a variety of restaurants. Chefs from Antigua, Balzac, España, La Merenda, Marcus Restaurants, Odd Duck, The Rumpus Room and Screaming Tuna will provide a menu sure to expose guests to a wide spectrum of tastes. Complimentary wine will be flowing throughout the night as well.
There will also be an accessories auction for men and women, with all of the proceeds benefiting the American Heart Association. We have items from some of the hottest designers and boutiques; Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, Ben Sherman, Chaume, Lela, La Hola and Pandora. Attendees will also have the chance to bid on a variety of arts and entertainment packages including Packers tickets, a stay in Lake Geneva, dance lessons and even a bowling party.
“We wanted to reach a new audience with our message of heart health and also actively engage people in our mission,” said Debra Rollick, Executive Director of the American Heart Association in Milwaukee. “We’re so excited to have this beautiful venue. Hopefully everyone will have a fun evening, but also learn more about the life-saving work we do at the American Heart Association.”
