Raise a Glass to Make a Difference at the Club’s Annual WineFeast


February 27, 2024

The Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh is thrilled to announce that our largest fundraiser of the year, WineFeast, will return on Saturday, April 27 at the Oshkosh Waterfront Hotel & Convention Center.

WineFeast, brought to you by Community First Credit Union, features a Cellar Select dinner and wine experience that begins with a champagne reception kicking off at 5:00 p.m. Attendees will enjoy five mouth-watering courses, each paired with wine, an engaging live auction, and a short program that includes a heartfelt 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 kindly provided by Premier Waterfront Catering, Greene’s Pour House at the Granary, Parm, The Roxy, and Suzy’s Cream Cheesecakes.

Following dinner, Night Cap offers opportunities to sample a variety of wines, both domestic and imported brews, and delectable dishes from a selection of beloved local eateries with melodic jazz performed by Mike Kubicki Quartet. In addition, guests will receive a complimentary Riedel red wine glass as they enjoy the evening. 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.

Every dollar raised at WineFeast directly contributes to supporting children and families who are in need of the services that the Club provides. With the successful completion of the Club’s construction project, a new chapter unfolds as our capacity to serve children impacts more young lives than ever before. From providing nutritious meals, and academic assistance to offering mentorship and quality programming, the Boys & Girls Club plays a vital role in fostering brighter futures.
