WAUSAU — The UWMC Foundation will host the 35th Annual EATS (Educational Assistance Through Scholarships) event from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct.  27 on the UW-Stevens Point at Wausau campus. Doors will open by 6 p.m. for a wine and beer reception, with 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, in a news release. More than 400 people attended last year’s event, which raised nearly $20,000 in support of scholarships for students attending UWMC.

EATS 2018 will feature a diverse group of local chefs, who will share a 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 beverages, including wine and beer.
