an Oyster Roast?
The 15th Annual Milwaukee Oyster Roast is one of the more unique events you'll attend in 2018. Popular in the "low country," oyster roasts involve copious amounts of freshly-steamed oysters, beer, music and fun, not necessarily in that order! It's so simple...we can't imagine why it took so long to get up to Milwaukee!
VOLUNTEER or donate
Help us help people with blood cancer and their families. Our dedicated volunteers are the heart and soul of the Oyster Roast. Schlepping oysters, selling tickets, auction donations... there are many different ways you can participate and make a difference in the lives of those touched by blood cancer.

The 2018 Fundraising Goal is $100,000!
Why $100,000? $100,000 will allow our non-profit partners to provide financial support to individual families and organizations focused on cancer research, education or advocacy. And $100k can fund two Special Fellowships for one year, Special fellows are qualified investigators who have completed a minimum of two years post-doctoral research training and are continuing their research under the direction of a research Sponsor. The Special Fellowship should permit the scientist to transition to an independent research program.
