Bank’s UPAF Fundraiser Raises Almost $8,000 for Milwaukee Arts Scene

North Shore Bank UPAFEmployees at the corporate office held a state-fair-themed fundraiser for Milwaukee’s United Performing Arts Fund on April 8 and beat their original goal to raise $6,500 for UPAF when co-workers came together to bring in $7,794.25. The fundraiser included activities like a marketplace where employees could shop for homemade and donated food and gift items; a cream puff eating contest; a potato bar, where diners could prepare baked potatoes with all manner of toppings; and farm animal races — of a sort. The people selected to race each got a bandanna with a cow, a sheep, or a pig on it and then the racers rolled dice to determine how many spaces to move across a grid marked on the floor with masking tape. Local performers were also entertained with juggling, fortune-telling, plate spinning, balloon animals, and more. The activities resulted in good times, lots of laughs, and donations for a worthwhile charity. Next up, North Shore Bank will participate in the annual UPAF Ride for the Arts on June 5.
