The United Performing Arts Fund will celebrate the formal end of its 50th Anniversary Campaign with an event on June 14 at 5:30 p.m. at the Northern Lights Theater at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. The program will be followed by a hosted event, including complimentary beer, wine and soda and hors d’oeuvres.

In addition to announcing the campaign goal, Milwaukee-based actor James Pickering will perform Spencer Tracy’s closing speech from the 1967 film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, followed by a performance of the song, popularized in the movie, “The Glory of Love,” by a UPAF Member Group. Two-time Oscar-winner Tracy was born in Milwaukee in 1900, and lived his early years in the Merrill Park neighborhood and Bayview.
Potawatomi Hotel & Casino is the sponsor of UPAF’s closing celebration. UPAF’s 50th Anniversary Campaign is sponsored by Herb Kohl Philanthropies, Badger Meter, Baird, J.H. Findorff, Johnson Controls, MGIC, and the Milwaukee Brewers.
