Fellowship at work

MILWAUKEE -- For years now, this time each August, CBS 58 has focused on the Fellowship Open.

It's an annual golf outing that raises money for programs aimed at improving the lives on inner city young people.

On Monday, CBS 58 News got to witness the fellowship at work at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

The museum hosted a group of young people from the Harambee neighborhood who are part of the non-profit group Heartlove Place.

For many it was their first time in a while they've been outside their own block or street.

"We're there to counter balance what's going on in the street," Executive Director Viola Rembert explained, "Bring them to places like the Art Museum to show them other things they can learn about other than what's negative in the community."

Heartlove Place is one of several organizations to benefit this year from the 13th Annual Fellowship Open.

It's a treasured fundraiser sponsored by Quarles and Brady Law Firm specifically with the goal of continuing programs with proven results in impacting the lives of inner city youth.

The children with each group will get a chance to meet the golfers, but also mingle with legends in sports,  but also leaders in business and politics.

Johnson Controls Vice President Chuck Harvey is one of this years special honorees.

"I've been blessed," Harvey told CBS 58 News, "and I try to share that. with my involvement in the community. If it inspires somebody else to do it, then I'm thrilled."
