The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee has helped kids and teens since 1887, when Annabell Cook Whitcomb transformed two basement rooms at Plymouth Church on Milwaukee’s East Side into a club for boys.
Today, it's the largest youth-serving agency in the city and has grown to be one of the largest Boys & Girls Clubs in the country.
Tonight, tune in on your favorite device (or set the DVR or, heck, wait until the social media post about it later) to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to learn more about Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. The show airs on ABC.
Mike Suszek, digital marketing coordinator at the clubs, confirmed that a "local staff member and a few Milwaukee kids" will be on the show tonight.
In a tweet today, the Boys and Girls Clubs noted it is "excited" about "a special opportunity" on Kimmel's late-night show.
A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
Early in his career, Sherman was one of youngest members of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and currently is involved in numerous civic and community groups - including board positions at The Wisconsin Center District, Wisconsin Club and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He's honored to have been named to The Business Journal's "30 under 30" and Milwaukee Magazine's "35 under 35" lists.
He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
