It’s the most wonderful event of the year. The Young Milwaukee Holiday Gala is just around the corner -- and this time it is at a brand new venue. 

This glitz-and-glamour-filled night is the Young Milwaukee Holiday Gala, which takes place Friday, Dec. 7, at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. The new venue will allow for almost double the capacity as past galas.

The event sells out almost instantly; last year it was under an hour, and it's one of the highlights of the holiday season. I've attended since the very first year, and each year I've gotten more and more of my friends to attend, as well. OnMilwaukee is a proud sponsor. 

Take part in this special occasion to share the magic of the holidays with our community’s kids. This is your opportunity to be someone’s Secret Santa -- sleigh it for the kids!

Formal wear is encouraged. Please bring an unwrapped toy to place under the tree. All proceeds go to the Journey House. Last year more than 700 Milwaukee families were supported by this event. 

Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 9 at noon and will likely sell out. See you there, Milwaukee! 

Carolynn Buser Chief Content Officer

Carolynn Buser is one of Milwaukee's loudest and most adamant cheerleaders (don't dare try to disagree). She's the primary voice behind much of OnMilwaukee's social media and content direction, and apologizes in advance if she can be too sarcastic at times. 

What else? She's a wine lover, closet trashy novel reader, beauty supplies addict and devourer of cheese (shocker for a Wisconsin born and bred girl, right?). She's also a bit of a foodie, which is a word most of you hate, we know. She works as hard as she plays - and that includes in the gym! So, you've probably seen her at one of the area's newest restaurant openings (and yes, she will share her opinions good or bad) or enjoying a cold one at a local pub.

All in all, Carolynn's a believer in positive thinking and will do her best to smack down your negative ones while writing about her city, her loves, quests and more.
