Rainbow Over Wisconsin invites you to our 2018 Annual Gala at Liberty Hall in Kimberly on Friday, March 23, 2018 to benefit the LGBTQ community of Central, Eastern and Northeastern Wisconsin. This is our largest fundraising event of the year and makes the great work we do in our community possible. The evening will include a bucket raffle auction, dinner, and keynote speaker Jason Rae.
