THE EVENT : Kapco and a number of generous partners are pleased to present the sixth annual Grand Slam Charity Jam that will benefit Camp Hometown Heroes and other Southeastern Wisconsin charities. This is a can’t miss, high-energy, visually stunning and extremely fun annual sell- out event.  The event features a cocktail party, silent and live auctions, scrumptious short ribs & shrimp duet dinner, live entertainment, After-Party and more. The Grand Slam Charity Jam is not an event with long speeches and award presentations. Rather, it is truly a great party with a purpose!

This years’ event features a performance by the legendary JACKSONS (Tito, Marlon and Jackie) with very special guests Andi & Alex of NBC’S The Voice.

THE BENEFICIARIES The first five Grand Slam Charity Jam events generated net revenue of over $600,000 for nearly 25 charity partners. This year, our primary beneficiary is again Camp Hometown Heroes, a free week-long summer camp in Wisconsin for children who lost a parent or sibling through service in the U.S. Military. These children made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Camp Hometown Heroes provides them with restored hope and healing.
