Milwaukee Event Photographer: United Way!
Being a Milwaukee event photographer has brought us into close contact with many inspirational people and their efforts to help better their community. No organization represents that spirit better than United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County. Their annual closing ceremony is the crowning event of their campaign, honoring those that have given so much of themselves to help others. At this event, they reveal how much money has been raised and time that has been volunteered throughout the entire year. It’s especially moving to see the sum totals. As the year unfolds, it’s easy to wonder how much difference an individual can really make. To see the tally is a huge reinforcement of the power of individuals working together as a group.
Many of the most influential people in Milwaukee were there to support this great cause including Mayor Tom Barrett, Greg Marcus, and Dr. Darienne Driver. We talk around the studio about how we wish everyone could hear the words we hear as a Milwaukee event photographer and being exposed to such moving moments. In our day-to-day lives, we feel like the reports about how the powers-that-be are working toward a vision of a better world just aren’t all that prevalent. The negative stories can sometimes outweigh the positive in most news outlets. There is a lot of concern about the state of the world and the divisions that seem to be deepening. But hearing what good people that are in a position to make real change have to say, go a long way toward reassuring a concerned soul.
Of course, the moment everyone was most excited for was the big reveal. Everyone knew the numbers would be impressive, but to actually see that over $60 million was raised and 21,214 hours were volunteered was truly inspiring.
