Event partners help provide financial backing for our most important annual events and initiatives.
Help us by hosting one of our events for free or at a discounted rate. Or, auction items are always needed for our fundraising events: unique experiences, performance art tickets, restaurants and other gift certificates, and vacations are especially valued.
Lifetime Art Exhibition
The annual Lifetime Art Competition is a juried, traveling exhibition of art created by adults 50+ who live in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Racine Counties. The exhibit, usually featuring 25 pieces of art, travels throughout southeastern Wisconsin from May-March.
Pearls of Wisdom Fundraiser
Interfaith’s annual Pearls of Wisdom fundraiser is our biggest event of the year. Celebrated each Spring, we take time to honor our community’s outstanding older adults, community partners and caregivers.
Social Innovation Prize Luncheon
The Social Innovation Prize in Wisconsin honors adults 60+ who are defying expectations by channeling their creativity and talent to address critical social problems at the local, regional, or national level. The winner receives $5,000 for her/his charity, and $5,000 for the organization of her/his choice, for a total of $10,000.
Pull Up a Chair Fundraiser
Interfaith’s Pull Up a Chair in Your Neighborhood fundraiser is our annual Fall “chair-ity” event that supports our neighborhood outreach services – the first services Interfaith offered to Milwaukee-area seniors in 1975. This event is always a favorite, featuring a live-auction of handmade chairs, raffle, silent auction, and more.
