Tis the season for giving – but for some people in Milwaukee, when it comes to the city's senior community, it's always time to give, whether it's their time, their money, their energy or all of the above and then some. And we're here to celebrate them with "Dear Seniors, Thank You," a new campaign from the 3rd Street Market at the Avenue and OnMilwaukee.
Throughout the month of December, "Dear Seniors, Thank You" is asking for nominations for people throughout the city of Milwaukee – both individuals and groups – that have made a difference, large and small, on the lives of Brew City's senior citizens.
From those nominations, five finalists will be selected in early January, with a public poll deciding the winner in late January – with nominees getting the chance at winning the likes of Brewers tickets, dinner for six at Carnevor Steakhouse Moderne, autographed jerseys by all-star Christian Yelich, Ryan Braun and Donald Driver, plus an exclusive invite to the 3rd Street Market Hall and much more.
Nominate yourself or someone else in the community who's made the lives of local senior citizens better by telling the story here – and we can't wait to hear about all the wonderful things our city does for its fellow citizens! Because no matter the results, we all win in a contest like this.
