MILWAUKEE - Louie's Last Regatta sets off at noon today on the Milwaukee lakefront.  It's a charity event, benefiting Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

Over 125 boats gather each year to participate. The special event gained its name from the Milwaukee Ale House's Flagship brand "Louie's Demise" Amber Ale.

Since 1999, the regatta has raised more than
$1,000,000 for Children's Hospital, and is the largest 3rd party
fundraiser for Children's.

Immediately Following the Race & Poker Run there will be a party at the Milwaukee Ale House. Everyone is invited!
