U.S. Bank boosts local events with funds formerly tied to golf event

Bank sponsors Air & Water Show, Brewers block parties, expanded fireworks display and more.

U.S. Bank announced several new and enhanced sponsorships of local events last week, in the first year since its decades-long sponsorship of the U.S. Bank Championship golf tournament ended.

U.S. Bank is now a title sponsor of the Milwaukee Air & Water Show, to be held June 11-13 at Milwaukee’s Bradford Beach. This year’s show will include a performance by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, as well as military flight teams and other air and water performers.

The bank has also expanded its sponsor relationship with the Milwaukee Brewers. U.S. Bank is the presenting sponsor of the team’s block parties, where fans can meet players and play baseball-themed games. The Brewers will hold several block parties throughout the season in different areas around Milwaukee.

U.S. Bank will present an expanded July 3 fireworks display this year, including multiple launch sites and a larger display.

The bank has also continued its sponsorship of the U.S. Bank Gathering Place at the Milwaukee County Zoo and its relationship with the Milwaukee Symphony.

“U.S. Bank is very committed to our Wisconsin markets, which we’ve been a part of for more than 150 years,” said Bill Bertha, the bank’s Wisconsin president. “We are proud of our partnerships with these outstanding organizations who contribute so much to the quality of life in our community. These activities should provide more opportunities for those living near and far to sample the many attractions Milwaukee has to offer while also helping to generate economic activity for our local businesses.”
