Havenwoods Economic Development Corporation was featured as a Finalist for the 2014 Annual MANDI Awards.
Sponsored by U.S. Bank, in partnership with LISC Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation are “the Oscars of the Community Development World”. The MANDIs recognize efforts to strengthen Milwaukee’s central city neighborhoods.
While many people are working hard to improve Milwaukee’s neighborhoods, their stories are often untold. The MANDIs recognize the inspiring, innovative, and tenacious work of people who are improving the quality of life in our central city, says Leo Ries, LISC Milwaukee Executive Director.
Finalists and winners are selected by an independent, cross-sector volunteer selection committee. The committee reviews nominations and selects three finalists in each of five categories. Winners were announced at a gala event at the Pfister Hotel in April. This annual event brings together corporations, foundations, lenders, small businesses, developers, and nonprofits for a night of celebration and fun. source: http://www.lisc.org/milwaukee/mandi/
