Business Health Care Group was well represented at the Sixteenth Street Health Centers’ annual celebrity roast held last month. In addition to BHCG, several member employers were sponsors of the event including Northwestern Mutual, BMO Harris Bank, Baird, Rockwell Automation, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren.
A crowd of several hundred gathered at The Pavilion at Discovery World on November 28 to benefit Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers, one of the preeminent Federally Qualified Health Centers in the country. The program, emceed by Steve “The Homer” True of ESPN Radio featured a roast by several colleagues of Mary Lou Young, the retiring CEO of United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County. Through a combination of sponsorships, attendance fees, live auction items, a raffle and “fund-an-item,” more than $230,000 was raised during the evening for this most worthy cause.
Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers provide high quality health care, health education and social services to more than 40,000 residents annually of the multi-cultural neighborhoods on Milwaukee’s South Side and in Waukesha. BHCG is proud to support the mission and work of the Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers.
