cf_take_flightMilwaukee’s signature charitable event returns for a sixth year May 5, 2012, as more than 300 guests will “Take Flight” at Creative Fusion with event co-chairs Matt and Brenda Levatich. Presenting Sponsors are Harley-Davidson Motor Company and Jason and Milsco, A Unit of Jason.

Sold out each of its previous years, the fun-filled event benefits MIAD scholarships and the 96% of MIAD students who receive financial aid to help them become the creative leaders who drive our economy.

“Creativity makes our world more interesting, productive and progressive, and we enjoy seeing MIAD students’ talents ‘take flight’ into meaningful professional and personal pursuits,” said the Levatichs, who encourage guests to “come celebrate Creative Fusion with us.”

Brenda and Matt LevatichGuests’ spirits will soar as Creative Fusion takes surprising new paths in MIAD’s one-of-a-kind campus, including the opportunity to buy hundreds of works by student artists and designers.

Guests will also experience the art and design processes, while enjoying fine cuisine by Chef Scott Shully, live and silent auctions of fine art and design, the 2012 Senior Exhibition and a final destination of dancing in the 4th floor “Lounge.”

Last year’s student speaker, Julie Xiong ’12, one of the 25% of MIAD students who are   the first in their family to attend college, thanked donors for “making MIAD accessible to students like me” and has shared her story.
