MILWAUKEE — Our very own Lance Allan will be taking part in the Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers' 2020 roast.
Lance will be roasting Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist and distinguished fellow in public policy and law at Marquette University Law School, Mike Gousha.
“We are proud to recognize Mike Gousha and all he has done for the Milwaukee community,” said Dr. Julie Schuller, President and CEO of Sixteenth Street. “Not only is Mike a Milwaukee legend, but he has been a great supporter of Sixteenth Street. Coming together for this year’s Roast will be a celebration of the good people and hard work that persists during these unprecedented times.”
Along with Lance, Gousha will also be roasted by Mark Baden, Chief Meteorologist at WISN, Joan Prince, Vice-Chancellor at UWM, Maria Monreal-Cameron, Past President and CEO of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Wisconsin, and Linda Marcus, Co-curator and Creative Director of Saint Kate Arts Hotel.
Funds raised at the Roast will work directly to expand access to health care and improve the health and wellness of Milwaukee’s south side, Sixteenth Street Community Health Center said in a press release Tuesday.
“I’m honored to be a part of this year’s virtual Roast. Sixteenth Street does such good, important work in Milwaukee. It makes us better,” said Mike Gousha. "I hope everyone will join us for a few laughs at my expense, but more important, to support this great cause.”
