Upcoming Events & Resources - October 2022
See what we have in the works!
Greeting Friends and Neighbors,
Riverworks' 2nd Annual Beerline Shuffle was a great success! Over 250 community members came out and celebrated the Harambee and Riverwest neighborhoods by walking 3 miles along the Beerline Trail, participating in a stretching exercise with Riverwest Yogashala, learning Shuffle Dance moves with Sabrie, creating a community quilt with Sarah, listening to the music stylings of Milwaukee Hittaz Drum Corp, Bryan Cherry on the Funk Wagon, Roxie Beane, and DJ Gidmoney, and engaging with a variety of other activities.
We would like to thank each and every neighbor, partner and business that made this event possible. Residents came together to volunteer at the activity stations and as traffic safety ambassadors. Partnering organizations educated and engaged residents on a variety of topics including environmental issues surrounding water. We received a flood of in-kind donation support from 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, Scratch Ice Cream, Dream Bikes, Fischberger's Variety, Stone Creek Coffee, Trader Joes, Outpost Natural Foods, Riverwest Brewery Syndicate, Wisconsin Bike Fed, Lush Popcorn, Truly Spoken, and Bpstickerdsesigns MKE. Finally, our Beerline Celebration series - comprised of the Beerline Shuffle and three installments of Music on the Beerline - could not have come to fruition without the generous financial support from Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, Bliffert Lumber & Hardware, Powers Jewelry Designers, Company Brewing, Heider & Bott Company, and Community Development Management Partnerships.
