My Best Friend is Straight and Annual Garden Party Thank You Letter

Dear Friends,

Thank you to everyone who supported or joined us for the wedding of My Best Friend is Straight and the Annual Garden Party at Will Radler’s home July 12. The event was an enormous success, all thanks to your generosity.

Every year, the funds we raise from the event are donated to organizations that advance the quality of life, dignity, and health of LGBT people in Southeastern Wisconsin.

We are pleased to announce that this year, thanks to 425 guests in attendance, we raised more than $45,000.  We are excited to continue in our mission of supporting deserving organizations.

We would especially like to acknowledge philanthropist Will Radler, who co-hosted this event with his Annual Garden Party.  By combining of our events, attendees and sponsors increased significantly in comparison to previous years.

Without Will’s support of the Cream City Foundation and the LGBT community, the magnitude of this event would not have been possible.

If you’d like to learn more about ways to give back, click here.

Thank you! We hope to see you throughout the year, including at the Business Equality Lunch in October!
