Annual Fundraisers

Helping kids has never been so fun. Your sponsorship and participation positively impacts a child’s life. Not to mention, it makes you a part of something big.


Taste of the Town postponed

BBBSNEW has had to make the hard decision to postpone Taste of the Town due to COVID-19. The decision was made because our number one priority is for the safety of our entire BBBSNEW family. Unfortunately, this will leave the agency with an estimated $300,000 gap in our budget. To combat this shortfall, we have created a year-end fundraising campaign called Fund the Gap.  BBBSNEW is extremely grateful to the sponsors, donors, volunteers, and caterers for Taste of the Town who have decided to reallocate their contributions/donations for Taste of the Town to Fund the Gap. 

You can also support the programs that serve our Bigs and Littles by supporting Fund the Gap.

Wine and dine at the Taste of the Town
Save the Date – October 29, 2021

Taste of the Town is the largest annual fundraiser for the agency raising at least $80,000 for our annual program costs. This supports 80 matches for one year.

Taste of the Town is a signature event for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin, dating to 1992. In 2016, a companion event, Chef Showdown, was created for a second night of fundraising. Chef Showdown was a small component of Taste of the Town for many years held in a side room featuring two chefs competing with minimal cooking tools and a small pantry. Chef Showdown was discontinued in 2019 to focus on developing the potential of Taste of the Town.

Taste of the Town features dozens of restaurant and catering vendors providing sample tastes of appetizers, entrees, side dishes, desserts and beverages. Crowd is capped at 600.
