Hupy and Abraham Employees at COA Gala

Hupy and Abraham was a proud sponsor of the Children Outing Association’s (COA) Night with the Stars!  The event brought together community leaders, corporate professionals, and friends and family affiliated with COA at the Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel.

Raising the bar for nonprofits, COA is committed to longevity and resolution. They have stood the test of time nurturing children, supporting families and building strong and resilient communities. Their impact is felt – one child, one family and one community at a time. The basis for COA’s work is offering essential and quality early education, youth programming and community initiatives for preteens and teens. Even Camp Helen Brachman in central Wisconsin has year-round experiences to balance the lives of children.

More than 300 people, including several firm employees, including Marketing Director Jill Wellskopf, attended the event.  The firm was this year’s Rising Star Sponsor. Congratulations to COA’s Rising Star - Aniyah Winckler  - for her achievements. During the event fundraising portion of the evening, Attorney Michael Hupy generously pledged to send three children to summer camp.  

WISN 12 News Anchor Kristin Pierce and Sports Director Dario Melendez emceed the event.

COA was started in 1906 and is the most efficient charity in Wisconsin according to Charity Navigator.  COA serves more than 15,000 Milwaukee children and families through their 22 locations.  Proceeds from this event directly support COA's life-changing programming for over 8,000 children and families in Milwaukee.
