United Performing Arts Fund names 2017 campaign co-chairs

The United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) has named Betsy Brenner, former publisher of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel; Linda Gorens-Levey, a partner with General Capital Group; and Alex Kramer, market leader for the Private Client Reserve of U.S Bank, to co-chair UPAF’s 50th anniversary campaign next year.

All three co-chairs have a history of community service. Kramer serves on UPAF’s board, and both Brenner and Gorens-Levy have served as cabinet members.

“We’re so excited that Betsy, Linda and Alex will be joining us to celebrate our milestone year and raise the vital dollars needed to grow and sustain our world-class performing arts scene in the Milwaukee area,” said Deanna Tillisch, president and CEO of UPAF. “Our annual campaign is always a celebration of the performing arts, but it’s also an opportunity to elevate awareness of the arts and its ability to entertain, educate and bring our community together.”

The 2017 UPAF campaign dates will be March 1 through June 14, 2017. The 2016 UPAF campaign raised $12.1 million for 15 member groups.

United Performing Arts Fund’s mission is to secure community resources, promote the performing arts as a regional asset and improve the quality of life through responsible investment in and financial support of the performing arts in southeastern Wisconsin. For more information, visit upaf.org.
