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 over $118,000 in net revenue when last held in 2019. 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.
