WineFeast 2017 – Cellar Reservations are Selling Out Fast!

Call your friends and make your plans for WineFeast 2017 presented by FNB Fox Valley / Nicolet National Bank. The event will be held at the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel and Convention Center on Saturday, April 29th and reservations for the elegant Cellar Select dinner prior to general WineFeast are almost already sold out!

WineFeast is one of the biggest social events in Oshkosh with over 550 guests in attendance for general WineFeast, and over 500 guests will be seated for the Cellar Select dinner. In response to the increasing demand for more reservations, even more seats have been added to this popular portion of the event. Cellar Select, sponsored by the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel, is a relaxing five course dinner and wine pairing event which begins with a champagne reception promptly at 4:00 p.m.

During dinner, which is sponsored by CR Meyer, guests enjoy an exciting live auction and a short program including an opportunity to hear a firsthand, mission-focused story on how the Club has impacted the lives of children and families. Reservations cost $125 per person and tables of eight are available for $1,000. Reservations also include a full-access pass into general WineFeast.

Following Cellar Select, WineFeast begins at 7:00 p.m. and features delicious fare from over a dozen of your favorite local restaurants and a divine selection of over 100 wines and domestic and imported beers.

There will also be live entertainment by the Mike Kubicki Quartet, a silent auction with unique items for everyone and raffle opportunities to win wine and delectable chocolate from Hughes’ Home Maid Chocolates. Individual tickets cost $75 per person prior to the event.

If you plan to stay out late, rooms are available at the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel for WineFeast guests. The hotel is conveniently accessible from the Convention Center by skyway and is newly renovated. Reservations include today’s newspaper, and wireless internet.

All proceeds from Cellar Select and 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, family fun nights focused on bringing families in our community together, homework help, basic needs support, one on one mentoring, and quality programming that focuses on STEM, staying active, and character and leadership skills.
