Emiliano Ponzi and Red Nose Studio illustrated posters for the 15th Annual Croquet Ball benefiting the Penfield Children's Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Croquet Ball is the signature fundraising event for the center that helps infants and children, both with and without disabilities, reach their full potential through education, therapy services and family programs.
Held annually at the Milwaukee Country Club, the event includes a cocktail reception, exclusive croquet match, gourmet dinner and silent auction, where guests are invited to bid on the illustrators' posters. Past illustrators that have contributed to the event include James Jean, Josh Cochran, Travis Lampe, Frank Stockton, Jon Han, Ronald Kurniawan, Eduardo Recife, Pomme Chan, Laura Plansker, Sam Weber, Jessica Hische, Chris Buzelli and Chris Silas, just to name a few. Nearly $310, 000 was raised last year.
The 15th Annual Croquet Ball takes place on Saturday, September 11th, 2010.
