Just two more days until the celebration of all GiGi’s Playhouse Madison’s celebrations… our Generation G Gala! The Gala is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year – a night to celebrate the Down syndrome community, raise awareness and funds for the free educational, therapeutic and social programs our Playhouse families benefit from!


Whether you’ll be at the Gala with us, or not, we wanted to make sure that none of our Playhouse families or supporters miss out on our silent auction. This year, we have over 100 items, from themed baskets to gift certificates to the grocery store or spa, to big ticket items like…


Buddy Bike

Michelle Odland and family generously donated this Buddy Bike, valued at $3,000! The Buddy Bike is an alternative tandem bicycle with rear seat steering for riders with special needs providing adaptive and therapeutic cycling for riders with autism, Down syndrome, sight impairment, balance issues, low muscle tone and other disabilities that would prevent them from riding a bike safely on their own!


Stay at The Hawley House in Milwaukee

Plan a four-night getaway for six at The Hawley House, in Milwaukee. A cozy, mid-century modern property, run by an AirBnB Superhost, minutes from American Family Field (walkable – 2 miles), Fiserv Forum, the State Fair Park, Potawatomi Casino and beautiful downtown Milwaukee (think lakefront, museums, Milwaukee’s trendy Third Ward and more!).

Golf at House on the Rock Resort

Enjoy 18 holes for four at the beautiful House on the Rock Resort, a $220 value. After your round, enjoy all the House on the Rock has to offer. The resort is has comfortable accommodations, dining and a spa, and is short drive from the Attraction itself.
