Swing with Shorewood
Held in spring at Discovery World on the downtown Milwaukee harbor, Swing with Shorewood is SEED’s annual fundraising gala that combines dinner and dancing with music, raffles, and a silent auction. A weeklong online auction coincides with the event and offers donated items and services from local businesses, and Teacher Time experiences from Shorewood teachers and staff. The event typically raises up to $80k for Shorewood schools, and has been a cornerstone of fundraising efforts since SEED’s inception in 2003. Visit the Swing with Shorewood webpage to learn more.
Shorewood SEED Foundation’s annual bRUNch 5k walk/run takes place in September on the beautiful Oak Leaf Trail. It is an out and back course, starting and ending at River Park in Shorewood, Wisconsin, and features food trucks and post-race beverages. Participants receive an official race long sleeve shirt and finisher’s medal. The run has raised up to $4k for Shorewood schools, and brings community members and local businesses together for a fun outdoor event. Visit the bRUNch 5k webpage to learn more.
Music & More
Music & More is an annual springtime event that highlights the talents of Shorewood High School orchestra, band, choral, and musical theatre students. It is located in an intimate setting at local homes of community members who generously donate their living and dining rooms, and SEED board members provide food and beverages. A limited number of tickets are sold due to space constraints, and the event typically raises up to $1300 for Shorewood Schools.
