THANK YOU to all who joined us for UEDA’s annual fundraiser, Carnival Milwaukee, on Saturday, February 25.
Just over 270 people supported UEDA and celebrated Milwaukee’s culture and diversity by enjoying ethnic cuisine from 24 local vendors, live music by De La Buena, dance performances and lessons from Salsabrosa Dance Company, a fun photo booth and other unique festivities.
In February, Carnival is celebrated around the world — from Brazil to Belgium and Jamaica to New Orleans. Each year UEDA observes this tradition and celebrates Milwaukee’s culture and diversity.
