On Sunday, September 9, 2018, the Milwaukee Exposure and Explorer Project (MEEP) hosted its 9th Annual Luncheon for Education at the Four Points Sheraton, 8900 N. Kildeer Court.

The event serves to honor all the volunteers and supporters of the MEEP program. The event also serves as a fundraiser for the MEEP program. MEEP was founded in 2009 by Lilly Simmons, Erma Smith, and the late Betty Rodgers, to expose urban children to the possibilities and opportunities of a variety of careers.
