ANNUAL CROQUET BALL

In 2017, Penfield celebrated 50 years of changing the lives of Milwaukee’s most vulnerable children. During this half century, more than 30,000 kids have benefited from the agency’s devoted staff and comprehensive care.

Our year-long celebration culminated on September 9, 2017 at the 22nd annual Croquet Ball at the Milwaukee Country Club. The event raised more than $400,000! Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, speed croquet match on the front lawn, silent, live and paddle auctions, gourmet dinner and a program showcasing the stories of Mario, Monica, John and Peyton who all received care in our Special Care Nursery.

We also honored Penfield’s founders, Betty Bostrom, Marilyn Bradley, William Chester, William Eastham, Barbara Elsner and Martie Watts with the Benefactor Award for their vision and dedication to the success of Milwaukee’s children.
