Get Ready for an Exciting Evening at WineFeast on Saturday April 2nd

February 10, 2022

As we are quickly approaching WineFeast, sponsored by Community First Credit Union on April 2nd, we’re getting excited for the fun evening we have planned for you. Less than 15 tables remain so make sure to reserve your table and don’t miss out on a fun night of wining and dining in support of Club youth and families. Reservations include both the Cellar Select dinner and the private post-dinner Night Cap event beginning with a champagne reception promptly at 5 pm.

During dinner, guests will enjoy feature five delicious courses each with a wine pairing, an exciting live auction and a short program including a mission moment video and a story from our 2022 Youth of the Year, Goodness, about the impact the Boys & Girls Club has on Oshkosh youth and families and how Great Futures start at the Club! A few of our exciting live auction packages include a Canadian fishing trip, Wisconsin sports package, Farm to Table, and more!

In addition, one guest who participates in our Heads & Tails dinner game will win a diamond bracelet from Reimer Jewelers. Back this year is Reverse Raffle which awards the grand prize to the last number drawn instead of the first number drawn of the night. The last number drawn will be our winner of a $1,000 cash grand prize! Cash prizes will also be awarded for 2nd place – $750, 3rd place – $500, and 4th place – $250. Only 100 tickets will be sold. You can pre-purchase your tickets for Reverse Raffle by contacting Alex Fischer at (920)233-1414, ext. 122 or

Night Cap begins at 8 pm and is exclusively open to Cellar Select guests only following dinner at 8:00 p.m. and will feature the smooth jazz sounds of the Mike Kubicki Quartet and the opportunity to sample wine, domestic and imported brews and tasty bites from a number of your favorite local restaurants. Guests will receive a complimentary Riedel red wine glass.

There is also a silent auction with over 50 unique items ranging from family fun activities, sports tickets and memorabilia, jewelry, and more! Plus, a wine raffle where you have the chance to win a bottle of wine worth up to $100, Hughes’ Home Maid Chocolates raffle where six lucky people will get a bonus $50 cash in their chocolate box, and Faris Gourmet Popcorn and Simon’s Specialty Cheese raffle opportunities where six lucky winners will find a $50 gift card to an area restaurant hidden within their popcorn or cheese.

All proceeds from WineFeast go to the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh and directly benefit families and children in our community who most need the services the Club provides. This includes healthy meals and snacks, homework help, basic needs support, one on one mentoring and quality programming that focuses on STEM, staying active, and building character and leadership skills.
