UPAF 2016 Campaign Cabinet Kickoff

This morning UPAF held our 2016 Campaign Cabinet kickoff, generously hosted by The Pfister Hotel. We were serenaded by our Member Group,Skylight Music Theatre, and then got down to business as UPAF President & CEO Deanna Tillisch and Campaign Co-Chair Paul Eberle, Chief Executive of Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. (WHD), explained the ins and outs of the Campaign Cabinet’s roles and responsibilities. We can’t wait to continue working alongside our Cabinet members–this year’s campaign is already off to a great start, thanks to their participation!
