Grand Avenue Club has surpassed the goal of Virtual Grand Event 2020!

We wish all our friends a safe and satisfying Thanksgiving and are grateful for your support.
All Milwaukeeans who have experienced mental illness would be able to live lives that are satisfying and purposeful. No longer isolated, Clubhouse members have found work, friendships, education, and a strong sense of belonging to a community. No longer do they wonder "Is there a place on earth for me?" Grand Avenue Club genuinely needs and counts on them to pitch in and work side by side with staff to run all necessary aspects of this organization.
For over 20 years Grand Event gala has been held at the Pfister Hotel. This year there will be no dinner, no cash bar, no dessert, and no mingling. But the goal is the same: to raise essential support so that the Doors of Opportunity at GAC will remain open to members today and tomorrow.
