Riverworks Upcoming Events
See what we have in the works!
There is a lot happening around us right now, and we hope that everyone is safe! We just wanted to give you a quick update about a few things to keep an eye out for in our neighborhoods.
Dolphin Pool 2020 Goes Virtual!
The Dolphin Pool is Milwaukee's original pitch contest. Since we cannot all get together to celebrate this year, we have put together an extra special virtual experience. With the help of our friends at TankThink, our 6 finalists will have their pitches professionally filmed and released to the public on Monday, September 21st. The audience will have a chance to vote for the Community Choice winner, and all of the winners will be announced during a live stream event on Friday, September 25th.
Don't forget about our teen contestants as well! In partnership with Teens Grow Greens, a dozen or so youth teams will be narrowed down to two finalists; those pitches will be released for all to see, and this year the teen finalists will also be bringing home prize money!

Team Member Highlight
Meet Debbie, the Administrative Specialist at Riverworks. Debbie is a homeowner and active community member in the Riverwest neighborhood. She has been working with Riverworks for a year and a half- managing the financial and bookkeeping functions for Riverworks Development Corporation, as well as the BID and the NID. She also maintains and works to improve our HR processes and assists the team in Marketing and Fundraising. Although an administrative role is not as visible in the community as the programmatic positions are, it is equally crucial to the success of the organization!
