Summerfest South Gate
Sunday, May 31, 2015
7:00 AM - 1:00 PM
PODS of Milwaukee has been a proud sponsor of the popular recreational cycling event, the United Performing Arts Fund Ride for the Arts, sponsored by Miller Lite, since 2011. The event will take place on Sunday, May 31, to raise money for more than 30 performing arts organizations. The money collected by UPAF is critical to keep the general operations running, enabling the groups to continue to bring outstanding entertainment and educational outreach to the community.

PODS containers will serve as command posts called Oasis Stations that provide a safe option for storing station supplies such as water, Gatorade and food along the routes of the ride for cyclists to refuel in the middle of the ride. Since PODS containers are large and highly visible, it allows the event to instruct cyclists and spectators to look for them as guides to great viewing locations.

The UPAF Ride for the Arts, sponsored by Miller Lite, is one of the nation’s largest one-day recreational bike rides. Over 275,000 participants have joined since it began in 1981, generating more than $8.5 million in funds to support 15 UPAF Member Groups and numerous smaller Affiliates. The Ride features 5, 12, 25, 40 and 66-mile routes that utilize Milwaukee’s Lakefront, the Hoan Bridge, and other notable landmarks.

PODS of Milwaukee will be running a Facebook Campaign benefitting UPAF. Now through 12:01:00 a.m. on Sunday, May 31, supporters are encouraged to “Like” PODS of Milwaukee on Facebook, and for each new like, PODS will donate $1 to UPAF.

Uncharitable: Rethinking Nonprofits with Dan Pallotta

The way we’ve been taught to think about charity and change is upside down. If we changed the way we think about charity, charity could change the world.

This presentation is based on Dan’s book, Uncharitable, the best selling title in the history of Tufts University Press. The Stanford Social Innovation Review said it, "deserves to become the nonprofit sector’s new manifesto."

Uncharitable is for philanthropists, nonprofit executives and staff, donors, students, and anyone who cares about the great causes of our time.

Dan Pallotta, Author and Nonprofit Activist
Dan invented the multi-day charitable event industry with the AIDS Rides and Breast Cancer 3-Days. To date the industry has raised in excess of $1.5 billion for important causes in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K employing innovations Dan pioneered in the sector. His iconic TED Talk, "the way we think about charity is dead wrong" has been viewed more than 3 million times. It is one of the top 100 most-viewed TED Talks of all time.
