the gathering gala mardi gras event

Tuesday, February 21, Hupy and Abraham was proud to be a Doubloon Sponsor of The Gathering’s annual Mardi Gras-themed gala. The gala took place at The Ivy House and featured live jazz music, a raffle, silent auction, an award ceremony, a Mardi Gras-themed meal provided by Baked Dreams Catering Co. and an opportunity for people to celebrate The Gathering and the work of its dedicated staff.

The Gathering is a nonprofit organization that provides over 10 free meals each week to Milwaukee’s hungry and homeless population across multiple Milwaukee locations. Their community meal program offers fresh meals that are cooked and served on site provided by over 2,000 volunteers annually.

The Mardi Gras-themed gala included masks, green and purple beads, themed drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Guests were invited to bid on baskets offered by local donors and try a variety of activities such as the photo booth, caricature drawing station, the gift card balloon pop, the wine pull and more. The proceeds of the gala go toward their community meal plan program, as well as the reconstruction of one of their locations. Guests also enjoyed a presentation by the emcee, Andre Williams, in which awards were given out to volunteers and difference makers in their organization.
