Thank you for joining us at the 2023 Brave Hearts Gala, supporting the mission of the Red Cross and celebrating individuals who have prevented life-threatening situations from occurring, come to the aid of another, or contributed to the safety of our community through a single act or ongoing activity.
This event had now ended, but we hope to see you again next year!
Thank you to our 2023 Brave Hearts Honorary Chairs Peggy Williams-Smith, President and CEO of Visit Milwaukee, and Mark Kass, Editor-In-Chief of the Milwaukee Business Journal
