UPAF Bike Ride draws thousands
It may have been a little chilly, but the sun was a welcome sight for thousands of folks who took part in the annual UPAF Ride for The Arts Sunday morning.
\"5,400 people are down here to raise money for the performing arts,\" said UPAF President Deanna Tillisch.
UPAF is a non-profit organization that fund-raises for performing art groups in southeast Wisconsin.
The United Performing Arts Fund Ride for the Arts course takes you through the lakefront and ends on the Summerfest grounds.
The sponsors help make it all possible.
\"UPAF has been a part of this community for over 50 years and this is what it's all about,\" said Mark Sabljak with the Milwaukee Business Journal.
