About Louie's Last Regatta

Help us help kids

For 125 years, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin has provided exceptional pediatric care and services for kids and families. Our vision is for Wisconsin kids to be the healthiest in the nation, but we cannot achieve this vision alone. We rely on support from our community and corporate partners to make a difference in the lives of the children we serve, and we hope you will consider making an investment. Our signature events are one of the most powerful ways to engage the community and generate support that makes a difference for kids. By sponsoring Children’s events, your brand will enjoy positive exposure reaching various audiences. We offer a wide range of sponsorship options to meet your marketing and philanthropic needs and interests.

Louie’s Last Regatta
Louie’s Last Regatta started in 1999 by a group of Milwaukee sailors who wanted a final sailing regatta of the season, and wanted to raise awareness and funding for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Since then, this event has raised over $1.2 million and has become a memorable regatta for sailors all around the area. Beginning Friday evening, attendees will take part in a drawing and will learn about the impact Children’s has on our community. The regatta kicks off Saturday at noon in the Milwaukee Bay with over 100 sailboats, followed by a celebration and awards presentation.
