The Annual Patron Recognition Reception
This evening of food, friends and fun brings together the community and family members to honor a special person or couple who have given of themselves to support the Pump House and other arts activities or organizations in the La Crosse area. These arts philanthropists are honored at a Spring Gala that provides a delightful time to get to know behind-the-scenes donors. Your heart will be touched and new friends will be made at the annual Pump House Patron Recognition Reception.
We’re proud to announce that the 10th Annual Patron Recognition Reception will honor Wendy & Mark Mattison.
“We believe there are many good reasons to celebrate the Pump House Regional Arts Center. Over the past 40 years we have witnessed numerous opportunities, not only for ourselves but for the hundreds of artists and community members who have crossed under its historic arches.
Opening its doors to possibility, this gathering place has become home to a diverse community of people building connections through story, song, dance, and visual art.
The space is surrounded by walls that resonate its history and continues to lend fertile ground to visions ready to take flight.”
