Win a President’s Behind-the-Scenes Tour
at the Milwaukee Public Museum
MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (April 27, 2020)—On Thursday, April 30, the Milwaukee Public Museum (MPM) will have its second annual Giving Day which supports its world-class exhibits, care for collections and research, and provides programming, educational opportunities and community outreach efforts.
Those who donate to MPM on Giving Day between 7:00 a.m. and 3:59 p.m. on April 30 will be entered to win a private President’s Tour. The winner will be one of the first people to visit MPM when we reopen, with Dr. Ellen Censky as their guide, going behind the scenes with the one woman who has access to everything! From “staff-only” floors to research and collections areas, this tour promises to be a one-of-a-kind experience the winners will want to tell their friends about again and again.
Donors who give between 4:00 and 11:59 p.m. on April 30 will be entered to win a private Stargazing Experience and catered dinner for four at their home. MPM’s own Bob Bonadurer, Director of the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium, will provide an out-of-this-world evening as he takes you on a tour of the universe.
MPM’s temporary closure has meant a significant loss of revenue. Thanks to three generous donors, gifts to the Museum on Giving Day are doubled -- with matches up to $100,000. For more information on Giving Day, go to www.mpm.edu/givingday.
