(NEWS RELEASE) — The University of Wisconsin-Marathon County Foundation will host the 34th Annual EATS (Educational Assistance Through Scholarships) event on Saturday, October 14, 7 – 9 p.m., on the UWMC campus. Doors will open by 6 p.m. for a wine and beer reception, with the food area opening by 6:45 p.m.
“This one-of-a-kind event provides a wonderful opportunity to support students seeking the advantages of higher education while also enjoying a variety of food, live music, a 50/50 raffle and a few large silent auction items,” said Brad Zweck, executive director of the UWMC Foundation. More than 400 people attended last year’s event, which raised nearly $22,000 in support of scholarships for students attending UWMC.
EATS 2017 will include traditional indoor features, plus bluegrass band “North of Dixie” performing outdoors under a tent on the UWMC terrace. EATS 2017 will feature a diverse group of local chefs, who will be sharing a wide variety of appetizers, soups, entrees and desserts. EATS is open to the public and advance registrations are suggested. Tickets are $50 in advance or $55 at the door.
In addition to sampling tasty food, attendees will have their choice of some great beverages, including a wide selection of wines from a winery associated with Trig’s Cellar 70 and beer from Bull Falls Brewery.
