Happy New Year! Thank you to our Friends and Supporters! As the earth sleeps this winter, the Old World Foundation office has been very busy processing gifts that we have received for Old World Wisconsin. We want to thank our many Friends and supporters for remembering Old World Foundation/Old World Wisconsin at this time of year. The need for funding remains great for this coming year at this dynamic historic site.
We would also like to thank the following organizations, clubs, foundations, and individuals for their continued support for specific projects or programs in 2018: Standard Process for their gift to benefit the new Teaching Garden; the Kettle Moraine Garden Club for funding needed tools for guests to use at the Sanford (Yankee) gardens; the Ceres Foundation Fund at the Greater Milwaukee Foundation for their gift to the Heritage Breed Animal Program; The Herb Society of America-Wisconsin Unit for their gift for the gardens at OWW. In addition to these gifts, we have received gifts from anonymous donors that will benefit historic preservation and/or the gardens at Old World. Your continued support is deeply appreciated!
2018 Event Planning is Underway... Old World Foundation, like Old World Wisconsin, is also busy planning for events and fundraisers this year. "Tea with Cordelia Harvey" is coming up on March 18. LEARN MORE about this popular event held in Caldwell Hall at Old World Wisconsin.
We are also in the process of planning the 16th MIDSUMMER MAGIC FUNDRAISER on June 23. Our thanks to the Hegwood Family for sponsoring this event. Join us to hear live music on four stages, taste samples of gourmet foods, soda, beer and wine. View vintage vehicles from 1950 and earlier and participate in the silent auction and raffle. This is our largest fundraiser for Old World Wisconsin and we hope you can join us!
