A Unique, Fun Way to Help Support WisCOSH

Rooftop event July l7 hopes to raise $70,000 for three nonprofits – includes all CSGM groups!

Community Shares and its member organizations are one of three nonprofit groups selected to receive donations at a special downtown 11th story rooftop fundraising event, organized and hosted by Carl Templer.

The event is titled “7-17-70” because Templer hopes to raise $70,000 during the evening of July 17.  The other two beneficiaries will be Rogers Memorial Hospital and Adoption Resources of Wisconsin.  Guests can make the check out to any nonprofit group they choose: Community Shares will facilitate contributions to any of their member organizations, or any other 501-C3 in the US.

“No RSVP is needed but it is welcomed,” said Templer.  “Just come and enjoy this great space for one evening.  The wine and beer will be free.  If you cannot attend, please send a check to your favorite charity. Help me raise a mere $70,000 in one night.”

Templer is inviting everyone to bring a friend and your checkbook, but leave the pressure behind.

“Many non-profits are struggling in Milwaukee, as well as across the country – Let’s help,” said Templer.  “And be sure to bring a guest!  Come for a beer or glass or wine and a great 11th story view of Milwaukee from the roof of this condo. No pressure – just fun – and some dollars for your favorite charity.”

The event will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., Thursday July 17th at 730 N. Plankinton Ave. – Unit 10B, Riverfront Lofts Condos.  For more information, contact Community Shares or call Carl at 414-975-3484 or email him at
