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.

If your company is looking for positive exposure, sponsorship of a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin event allows you to reach a select group of business professionals and community members while helping to build strong futures for children and our community.

Wine and dine at the Taste of the Town

Friday, Nov. 8, 2019

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.
