West Bend continued its tradition of supporting the United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF), during their annual campaign. West Bend and its associates raised almost $73,000 through donation pledges and a variety of fun events, including a silent auction, 50/50 raffle, root beer float sales, a “bags” tournament, and an open mic showcase.
We’re thrilled to live and work in an amazing community with an extraordinary arts and culture scene, and we’re pleased to provide support to the performing arts, which are essential elements of our vibrant community.
UPAF is a nonprofit organization that raises funds to support performing arts. Their three-part mission is to raise much-needed funds to ensure entertainment excellence, to promote the performing arts as a regional asset, and to responsibly steward the dollars their donors so generously give. As the largest united arts fund in the country for the performing arts, UPAF has raised more than $300 million since its inception in 1967.
May 19 – 25 is National Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week. This observation recognizes and celebrates the EMS practitioners who provide day-to-day lifesaving services. This work is critical to the health, safety, and wellbeing of our communities. The theme for this year’s observance, “EMS Strong: Beyond the Call,” truly resonates for those in the EMS profession. There’s a desire and dedication to serve others that doesn’t end when the shift does.
This year, five days of EMS Week have a theme that represents the diverse nature of EMS.
Monday – EMS Education Day
Tuesday – Safety Tuesday
Wednesday – EMS for Children Day
Thursday – Stop the Bleed Day
Friday – EMS Recognition Day
We thank all EMS professionals who, day after day, come to the aid of others in stressful and life-threatening situations.
