An Event PERIOD_logo-01

October 12, 2023

5:00 pm

Poplar Hall, Appleton, WI

We’re excited to bring you the 2nd annual An Event, Period. on October 12 to benefit The Monthlies Project, which funds a growing need to distribute period products to schools and organizations that serve young menstruators. We’ve planned an evening of gut-busting comedy, hors d'oeuvres by the creative culinary team at Osorio’s Latin Fusion, reimagined craft cocktails and mocktails, and unapologetic empowerment!


This year’s entertainment will feature Appleton’s very own Tracy Schroeder, who has endeared herself to audiences with her subtle yet adorable Wisconsin accent, giving the illusion of a safe, middle of the road, ho-hum comic. But don’t be fooled by her innocent look and casual demeanor… this lady is a shark attack of sarcasm! Tracy has opened for Charlie Berens of the Manitowoc Minute, Mark Curry from “Hanging with Mr. Cooper” and Kevin Bozeman from “Last Comic Standing.” She has also been featured on the Nickelodeon website “NickMoms,” where several of her bits were in frequent rotation. The comedic talents of this saucy spitfire are in high demand and we’re excited for her to drown us in laughter!


5:00 – Registration, Networking & Food Buffet

6:00 – Program: Comedian, Community Panel & Fund the Mission

8:00 – Event Concludes (stay to socialize!)

The event will start at 5pm with networking and a curated playlist by TriJ the DJ (a.k.a. Trina Doxtator). Grab a cocktail/mocktail, enjoy tasty food from Osorio’s, and find a seat with friends. The program will begin at 6pm, featureing comedian Tracy Schroeder and a lively panel discussion with community members who will share their unique perspectives on menstruation, period poverty, advocacy, and the barriers our local youth are experiencing today.


Please arrive early in order to claim a seat, as tables are only reserved for event sponsors. Once the tables on the main floor are filled, there is standing room and high-top seating on the upper floor overlooking Poplar’s stage!


Poplar Hall is located at 141 S. Riverheath Way in Appleton. There is parking available in the lot next to Poplar Hall, as well as the nearby lots and street parking along Riverheath Way.

Our cycles may be monthly, but #periodtalk should be on the regular. Help us change the conversation and make menstrual products available to all. We hope you can join us for a memorable and energizing night — full of lightness, laughter, momentum, and a mission to end period poverty in Northeast Wisconsin!

How The Monthlies Project is impacting young mensturators:

"With not even a full 4 days of school under out belts, having the leggings and underwear at school has kept at least 3 students in school. Thanks again for all you do!"
