Individual tickets now available for the Annual Black and White Ball
Event returns as a limited in-person and hybrid mix

Milwaukee, WI (July 6, 2021) - Individual tickets can now be purchased online for the 36th Annual Black and White Ball, Milwaukee Urban League’s largest fundraiser. The Black and White Ball will take place on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at the Wisconsin Center, 400 West Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee WI 53203. The hybrid event, with a limited number of in-person guests, is generously sponsored by Rockwell Automation, the presenting sponsor of the event. A hybrid event allows individuals the option of participating via live stream from the comfort of their homes or attending in-person.

“Milwaukee Urban League is delighted that we can return to a face-to-face celebration in 2021,” said MUL President and CEO Dr. Eve M. Hall. “While health precautions still cause us to limit the number of in-person attendees, I have talked to many individuals who see holding the event at the Wisconsin Center as an important return to normalcy. We can’t wait to celebrate the success of Milwaukee Urban League and to thank the generous organizations and individuals who make it possible for us to empower communities and change lives.”

The theme of the 36th Annual Black and White Ball is We Are Hope in Action. Co-chairs are Cecelia Gore, Executive Director of Brewers Community Foundation, and Blake D. Moret, Chairman and CEO of Rockwell Automation.

Individual in-person or hybrid tickets can be purchased. The number of in-person tickets is limited; individuals wishing to attend in person are encouraged to purchase tickets now while supplies last. 

A limited number of Black and White Ball sponsorships – which include in-person and hybrid tickets – are still available. For more information, please contact Florida Perry-Smith at
