A boxing fundraiser for the Zoological Society of Milwaukee

It’s easy to get hooked on the Zoological Society’s annual Puttin’ on the Ritz fundraiser. The event is sure to be a knockout. Puttin’ on the Ritz, sponsored by Wintrust Commercial Banking at Town Bank, takes place inside Potawatomi Hotel & Casino. The evening starts with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at 6 p.m., followed by a gourmet dinner at 7:30 p.m. There are dozens of amazing items for you to bid on during the live and silent auctions. Then get ready for the main event. Some of the best amateur boxers in the country, arranged by The Wisconsin Local Boxing Committee (LBC), duke it out in three-round bouts. The boxing ring is sponsored by Bridgewood Advisors and the boxing is sponsored by HN Co. The after-party continues with cigars in the casino.

This is the Zoological Society’s second-largest fundraiser of the year. Last year’s event raised about $149,000.
