Next Gala - May 19, 2018

The Lakeland University Movers & Shakers Gala will see a one-year change in format, event planners announced today.

The 2018 Movers & Shakers will take place on Saturday, May 19, at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Sheboygan. It will feature a competition between up to 10 sponsored teams comprised of 4-12 dancers.

After the competition, the Movers & Shakers will host a post-event party at the Berkshire above the Black Pig, complete with a DJ in what promises to be one of the best night clubs Sheboygan has ever seen.

The venue change is needed due to significant construction on Lakeland's campus as the university is renovating its Campus Center.

"As we considered what to do for a year to accommodate all the great changes happening at Lakeland, we quickly settled on the most beautiful room in the county – the Weill Center for the Performing Arts," said Deb Wente, a Lakeland Trustee and the chair of the Movers & Shakers Gala planning committee.

"We already have a number of businesses and organizations interested in our team competition. This is going to be a great show, especially in this fabulous venue. And, we are so proud to have the Frank G. and Frieda K. Brotz Family Foundation as our 2018 presenting sponsor."

There will be three ticket options available. Tickets can be purchased for the competition at the Weill, the post-event party at the Berkshire or for both events. Details will be announced at a later date.

In 2019, the Movers & Shakers Gala will be back on the Lakeland campus with the popular couples dancing competition.

In the past 10 years, Lakeland's Movers & Shakers Gala has raised more than $2 million for 35 local charities and Lakeland student scholarships.
