United Performing Arts Fund launches 2018 Westside campaign

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and her daughter Ella are fundraising for creative expression.

They helped launch the United Performing Arts Fund’s 2018 Westside Campaign.

Both Kleefisch and her daughter shared their thoughts on the importance of the arts in southeast Wisconsin.

Ella is an actress and says performing gives youth important life lessons without the repercussions.

“We have to be willing to let these kids take part in something bigger, something that tells a story, but doesn’t have the chance of hurting them in the long run. That’s why it’s so important to support UPAF," Ella Kleefisch said. 

Total donations during the 2017 campaign reached over $12 million.
