Kathy’s House, a hospital guest house serving all Milwaukee hospitals, will hold its 15th Annual Gala on Saturday, April 25th at the Wisconsin Country Club, 6200 W. Good Hope Road in Milwaukee. Over the past 15 years, the Gala has been the major fund raising event for the House, raising more than one million dollars to provide patient and family housing to out of area patients being seen at a Milwaukee area hospital. Since opening in 2001, Kathy’s House has provided lodging and caring support to 6,500 families. Seventy-five percent of the families staying at Kathy’s House have a family member with cancer.

Dinner reservations are $150 per individual ticket. For reservations or additional information, contact Kathy’s House at 414-453-8290.

This year’s gala will feature a silent auction beginning at 5:00pm, hors d’oeuvres, dinner at 6:30pm, followed by an awards program and live auction. Jon Meerdink, WTMJ Radio News Anchor, will serve as the Master of Ceremonies. Jon had a personal friend of his stay at Kathy’s House earlier this year. Entertainment will be provided by the Alter Ego Band after the live auction.

Dick Vogel, the founder of Kathy’s House, will be honored at this year’s celebration. Dick died on November 13, 2014. Dick and his wife Judy, of Mequon, with many friends and family, started Kathy’s House to fulfill their daughter’s wish to create a place for families to stay while their loved ones received treatment at a Milwaukee hospital. As a cancer patient at Froedtert Hospital, Kathy observed that many out of area patients did not have family or friends as visitors because hotel costs were prohibited. Kathy’s House allows families to be close to one another during a medical crisis and provides them with comfortable and affordable lodging. It is the only hospital hospitality house in Milwaukee serving patients of all ages, from children through older adults.

Dick served as Executive Director until 2012. Kathy’s House was Dick’s greatest achievement and labor of love.

The evening will also feature testimonies from patients and families served by Kathy’s House. The following guests will speak to the impact that being able to stay at Kathy’s House has had on their lives and their respective medical journeys:
• Barb Klebba from Waupaca WI, who has spent the last 10 months at Kathy’s House while she receives treatment for a rare form of leukemia
• Bill Dones from Herron, Michigan, who underwent a successful surgery for pancreatic cancer
• Lloyd Combs from Pound, Wisconsin, who has stayed a total of 151 nights at Kathy’s House in the past two years; he is a caregiver for his wife who is awaiting a heart transplant
• Cindy Garrow and son Chip Garrow, Hortonville, WI; Chip stayed at Kathy’s House in 2003 for a bone marrow transplant and returned in 2015 for a second transplant
