Every winter we host a warming event for our neighbors and other Milwaukeeans to get together and have a blast!The NEW WInter Blast is a Saturday night dance party and beer tasting fundraiser for the Skate Spot! Who will YOU bring to the dance, Bay View?
The first Winter Blast Snow Ball featuring DJ Dori Zori will be on February 20th at South Shore Park Pavilion. District 14 Brewery will present a beer tasting at 7:00 and dancing will follow from 8:00 until 10:30 PM. This is a 21 and over event. Beer and wine will be sold all evening.
The suggested donation for the event is $15/person at the door, $10 for members online in advance:
Light appetizers donated by Pietro’s Pizza, Hamburger Mary’s and Cream City Swirl will be available, as will be as beverages and food to purchase from the Milwaukee County Parks.
The BVNA is grateful to our event sponsors, Toni Spott/Keller Williams Realty, WWPD, Inc., and Milwaukee County Parks. All proceeds from the Snow Ball will benefit the Skate Spot Initiative at Humboldt Park. The fundraising goal for the Snow Ball is $5000. A 50-50 and other raffles will be part of the event.
In addition to the 2016 Winter Blast event, the BVNA Skate Spot Initiative is currently working on substantial grant opportunities. Our proposed Humboldt Skate Spot conceptual design from 2013 is currently being updated. A community forum will be held in the near future to unveil the new design and gather community feedback.
