Celebrate the 2020 Bettys at a Virtual Event

On December 15th, Milwaukee Magazine is honoring seven outstanding women in honor of Betty Quadracci.

On December 15, from noon to 1:30 p.m., we’re paying tribute to Milwaukee Magazine’s former publisher, Betty Quadracci, who founded Quad with her husband Harry and left an inspiring legacy in her wake.

The Betty Awards, a virtual event (tickets $10; available here), honors seven local women, each of whom is a vibrant representative of Betty’s formidable spirit.

The afternoon will include a keynote address by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Anna Quindlen, who will talk about the strides that women have made towards equality, and what remains to be done. This speaker is presented by Baird, your trusted financial partner for the last 100 years.
