Jazz in the Park announces new sponsorship

Last updated on July 3rd, 2019 at 07:16 pm

This summer’s Jazz in the Park series will be backed by a new set of co-presenting sponsors.


Boston Store will join Columbia St. Mary’s in lead sponsorship of the 23rd season of the music performances, which draw live jazz ensembles and music artists to downtown Milwaukee’s Cathedral Square every Thursday during summer months.

“We’re thrilled to bring Boston Store on board as a co-presenting sponsor for this season of Jazz in the Park,” said Kim Morris executive director of East Town Association, which heads Jazz in the Park. “It’s fitting that we have two pillars of the downtown community combining efforts to keep this Milwaukee tradition going strong. Boston Store’s support alongside that of longtime contributor Columbia St. Mary’s allows us to continue delivering an eclectic mix of free musical entertainment to the community.”

As part of their role as co-presenting sponsors, Boston Store and Columbia St. Mary’s will help fund operating costs, including talent fees, audio/video equipment setup, event staffing and park maintenance.

And thanks to the new support of Boston Store, Jazz in the Park will introduce a new weekly giveaway promotion that will grant one patron special VIP seating, free parking, wine, appetizers from Flannery’s Bar & Restaurant, and a gift certificate for park vendors.

Under their agreement with East Town Association, both lead sponsors will be featured on Jazz in the Park promotional materials, including posters, signage, event T-shirts and advertisements.

Additional series sponsors include Madison Medical, Bud Light, International Autos Group, Gruber Law Offices LLC, WE Energies, Stone’s Throw Winery, Ellingsen Brady Advertising and Milwaukee County Parks System.

Jazz in the Park’s 2014 season will start on Thursday, June 5, with a performance by Nabori, a Milwaukee-based music group that specializes in salsa beats.
