Layton Boulevard West Neighbors, Inc. (LBWN) will engage more than 250 Milwaukee leaders in a dialogue about its community revitalization efforts at its eighth annual Executive Breakfast on Thursday, March 6.
The breakfast brings together leaders from Milwaukee businesses, foundations, nonprofits and city offices who “all have a vested interest in strong and vibrant neighborhoods in Milwaukee,” said Will Sebern, director of fund development and communications for LBWN, which focuses on community development and revitalization in Milwaukee’s Silver City, Burnham Park, and Layton Park Neighborhoods.
Anchoring the event will be a panel discussion driven by individuals who live and work in these communities. Moderated by Mitch Teich of WUWM, the panel will feature a block leader, a high school student and a business owner, who will explain how neighborhood investments have enhanced their livelihood.
“The goal of the community conversation is to provide the attendees with three different perspectives on what their investment in the neighborhoods is resulting in,” Sebern said.
The Executive Breakfast will also serve as a fundraiser for LBWN’s targeted strategies to improve quality of life in the Silver City, Burnham Park, and Layton Park Neighborhoods. Those strategies address neighborhood appearance, community safety, social engagement, youth education and leadership, community identity, healthy living, and economic development.
It will equally serve as a valuable networking opportunity, according to Sebern.
“The Executive Breakfast is a unique opportunity to support LBWN’s sustainable community revitalization efforts in Silver City, Burnham Park and Layton Park while also connecting with over 250 of Milwaukee’s top business, civic and philanthropic leaders who attend the event,” Sebern said.
The breakfast will run from 7:15 a.m. to 9 a.m. on March 6 at Alverno College, located at 3400 S. 43rd St. in Milwaukee. Tickets cost $125 for individuals or $1,000 for a table of eight. Space is limited to just over 300 attendees, and interested attendees must register by Monday, Feb. 17.
