Dream Big Dinner

A virtual fundraiser celebrating the class of 2021

ABOUT

Since 2014, College Possible Milwaukee has hosted the annual Dream Big Dinner as a night of celebration and recognition. Scholars share their experiences and we come together as a community to hear about their dreams after college. We honor the spirit of Pat Wilmeth by highlighting the work and impact of a College Possible partner. Finally, we celebrate the achievements of our students. Join us this year as we recognize The Michael and Billie Kubly Family, Molly Fritz and The Charles E. Kubly Foundation as well as celebrate our 2021 College Possible Milwaukee Graduates of the Year.

NEW for 2021! A Virtual Experience

As we adapt to our changing world and strive to keep everyone safe and healthy, College Possible Milwaukee will host its first-ever Virtual Dream Big Dinner. Sponsors and hosts will receive a specially curated and locally sourced VIP bag showcasing Black-owned businesses in Milwaukee as part of our commitment to lifting up not only our scholars’ academic achievements but also supporting our Milwaukee community. Portions of our program will be live-streamed, enabling our hosts and sponsors to engage in real-time with our guests. We will also highlight our impact and mission throughout the evening. We are expanding our scholar recognitions to include a High School Graduate of the Year as well as spotlighting the service of one of our AmeriCorps members.  Not to mention, a few other surprises up our sleeve!
