Lake Effect’s Mitch Teich with Erika Slezak, actress from the ABC soap opera “One Life to Live.”

The United Performing Arts Fund, or UPAF, supports arts organizations of various types across Milwaukee, from music to the visual and performing arts.  The organization began in 1967 as a way to stabilize the finances of Milwaukee’s prominent performing arts groups, including the Milwaukee Repertory Theater.

It was at that time that a young actress named Erika Slezak was getting her start with a job at the Milwaukee Rep. Slezak starred as a member of that company from 1967-1969 before landing a role of Victoria Lord on the ABC soap opera, One Life to Live.
