Fundraiser Celebrates 
CORE El Centro’s 15th Anniversary

CORE El Centro will host the CORE Momentum 2017 fundraiser on Thursday, May 11, at the Italian Community Center, and offers two different times to accommodate its growing number of attendees. The events include a showcase of the nonprofit’s services followed by the program and meal. The first event is scheduled from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the second from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. There is no admission fee for the events, but the organization hopes that guests will be inspired to make a free-will, tax-deductible monetary gift to support and strengthen CORE El Centro’s programs and services.

The nonprofit organization offers natural healing and wellness services in Spanish and English with fees charged on a sliding scale.

Attendees can be among the first to hear about exciting new ventures at CORE El Centro, says Development Director Pat Bogenschuetz. Since 2002, the organization has promoted holistic wellness for individuals and community. Their current programs include acupuncture, yoga and Food as Medicine, as well as classes on preparing healthy meals, natural body care products such as hand sanitizers, and non-toxic home cleansers.

Event location: 631 E. Chicago St., Milwaukee. CORE El Centro is located at 130 West Bruce St., Ste. 300, Milwaukee. For more information or to RSVP, call 414-225-4260, email or visit Eventbrite at or
