Due to Attorney Michael Hupy’s support for the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women, the Hupy and Abraham Senior Partner was personally invited by the organization’s Chief Development Officer, Shana M. Piaskoski, to attend the 21st annual Circle of Women Luncheon.
The luncheon took place at the Potawatomi Hotel & Casino's Event Center, on Wednesday, April 27. As in years past, business leaders and community members attended the luncheon to network, hear from program participants and show their support through financial contributions. Through their efforts, over $140,000 was raised by the end of the event.
This year's Circle of Women event featured the organization’s plans to increase their impact by helping people overcome racial discrimination in the workforce, as well as fundraising efforts lead by community leaders turned “table captains.” By involving members of the community, the Circle of Women is able to have an important impact on the lives of those in our community who need it most. Table captains, like Attorney Hupy, are a driving force in the Circle of Women's success.
The Circle of Women is the oldest organization in Milwaukee that is run by women, for women. This annual luncheon helps to broaden awareness and support of the YWCA’s programs. Hupy and Abraham supports the YWCA, as they make a difference in our community every day by providing important services like financial education, racial justice education for job seekers and expanded services for families facing homelessness.
In the past three years, Hupy and Abraham has donated more than $500,000 to more than 250 worthwhile causes like the YWCA.
