This year’s theme for the party is “Legends of Milwaukee,” which seeks to celebrate individuals who have made significant contributions to Milwaukee.

The public is invited to vote online for the “legends” in eight categories: sports, media, entertainment, business, government/politics/civic, founders, community enrichment/philanthropy and icons. Voting ends Jan. 26.
