Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh’s WineFeast Celebrates 30 Years

February 22, 2023

The Club’s largest fundraiser to support youth and families is April 22.

The Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh’s largest fundraiser of the year is back on Saturday, April 22 at the Best Western Premier Waterfront Convention Center in Oshkosh, and this year is the event’s 30th anniversary.

WineFeast, presented by Community First Credit Union, includes Cellar Select, a five-course dinner and wine experience which begins with a champagne reception promptly at 5:00 p.m. Guests will enjoy five mouth-watering courses, each with a wine pairing, an exciting live auction and a short program including a story from our Youth of the Year about the impact the Boys & Girls Club has on Oshkosh youth and families. Dinner courses for this year’s event are provided by Best Western Premier Waterfront Catering, Greene’s Pour House at the Granary, Oshkosh Country Club, The Roxy, and Suzy’s Cream Cheesecakes.

Guests will receive a complimentary Riedel red wine glass and enjoy the private post-dinner Night Cap event beginning at 8:00 p.m. Night Cap will feature the smooth jazz sounds of the Mike Kubicki Quartet and the opportunity to sample wine, domestic and imported brews, and delicious bites from a number of your favorite local restaurants. In addition, guests can bid on a silent auction with over 40 unique items and purchase tickets for several raffles, including a reverse raffle, wine, and chocolate raffles.

All proceeds from WineFeast will directly benefit children and families in our community who are in need of the services the Club provides. This includes healthy meals and snacks, homework help, basic needs support, mentoring, and quality programming.

Celebrate our 30th anniversary with us and purchase your WineFeast reservations today! Tickets are $150 per person or $1,200 for a table of eight.
