Garvin Business Center, 1315 Read Street of Evansville, IN which is in the Jacobsville Neighborhood District in Evansville will announce by its owner, Stuart B. Millner on Friday January 26 that it will become a major contributor for the North Main Street Coloring Contest and Corridor Kick Off Event.


Millner has raised over $1,000,000 for various “not for profits” and charities in the past 10 years for many communities in the Midwest area.

The tradition of giving and volunteering his time and help will continue in the coming months for the Evansville community, he said this past week.

He wants to do as much as he can to help in the Evansville, IN area and help turn he Jacobsville Area into a thriving first class neighborhood.


Milner has served on numerous not-for-profit boards:

  • The Repertory Theatre of Greater St. Louis… he was a board member for 7 years and a member of the executive committee.
  • COCA (Center Of Contemporary Arts)… he was a board member for over 10 years and served on its executive committee.
  • Logos School……he served on this board for 7 years. The school was great place to help many kids that needed help or needed assistance with substance abuse.
  • American Lung Association: . . . he served on this board for over 5 years.


Milner learned that in the world of Nonprofits raising money from charity events was a very important significant source of revenue.   His skills, (and a bit of the flair for the dramatic) enabled him to become the Featured Fundraiser for many organizations for their events.

Among them;

  • Center of Contemporary Arts (COCA)….
  • American Heart Association
  • American Lung Association
  • The Barnes Jewish Hospital Group
  • Logos School
  • Teen Challenge
  • The Catholic Charites
  • American Cancer Society
  • The Children’s Hospital of Greater St. Louis.
  • The Masonic Temple Organization of St. Louis
  • New City School
  • Community School
  • Crossroads School

Friends of Kids with Cancer


Milner’s work with these various organizations was meaningful, The American Lung Association gave him the Outstanding Volunteer Award, and St. Louis Crisis Nursery gave him their Shining Star award.

As Charlie Brennan of KNOX radio of St. Louis said, “Unlike most professional auctioneers, Milner always provided his services pro bono.”

Millner said he has always been a strong believer in Evansville since 1986 when he first purchased the old Whirlpool Plant. He developed the entire area from Garvin Park to the north, Heildelbach Street on the East and Read Street on the West. Today there are over 1,000 people working and living in the area he has developed.

Jacobsville needs help now and he said he is ready to do whatever he can.
