Celebrating a one-of-a-kind agency in a one-of-a-kind community at a one-of-a-kind venue, The Women’s Center’s fall event, A Noteworthy Evening, returns for a fourth year.

The Venue: boasting two floors of Romanesque architecture and unique elements from nearly a century as the County’s courthouse, Historic Courthouse 1893 in downtown Waukesha is truly a one-of-a-kind venue. Newly restored and transformed back to its original beauty from its 1893 design with modern updates to be ADA compatible, The Women’s Center is proud to host our event in this treasured, storied, and historic space.

The Event:upon arrival, enjoy passed hors d’oeuvres with complimentary wine and beer. Explore the Women Earn the Vote exhibit and Les Paul Experience at the Waukesha County Historic Museum on the lower level, peruse the silent auction of treasures from our one-of-a-kind community, enter the raffle for a chance to tickets to the Packers vs Bears game on Dec.15, or play the wine pull and cigar pull courtesy of Smokin’ Brew while enjoying live music by the Terry Smirl Trio from Present Music courtesy of the United Performing Arts Fund.

The evening will be emceed by Mayor of the City of Waukesha Shawn Reilly, and the program will feature comments from Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow, local historian John Schoenknecht, and Executive Director Angela Mancuso.

Conclude the night with a performance and tribute to Les Paul by The Chris Hanson Band, featuring vocals by Robin Pluer while enjoying coffee and dessert from the talented students of the WCTC Baking and Pastry Management Program.

The Cause: through this event, businesses, community leaders, and caring individuals come together to raise funds in support of the life-saving services of The Women’s Center, the only agency of its kind in all of Waukesha County. All proceeds from A Noteworthy Evening ensure more futures free from violence, helping to provide free, comprehensive care for the thousands of adult and child survivors of domestic and sexual violence who seek safety, shelter, and support at The Women’s Center each year.
