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.

Fund the Gap

BBBSNEW overcame many challenges throughout 2020/21 to ensure our Bigs and Littles stayed connected,
but there is still so much more that needs to be done for our matches and the children waiting to be matched.

The current situation has caused our agency to change ways in programing and fundraising, leaving us at an
estimated $225,000 gap in our budget due to setbacks.

We are looking for you to support our Fund the Gap campaign and help us close our gap. For the complete story

NOTICE: Taste of the Town has been cancelled for 2021
Due to the staffing and service issues Covid has had on our vendors we must unfortunately cancel Taste of the Town this year.
Stay tuned: Big Brothers Big Sisters will be looking to develop a year-end fundraising event to offset the cancellation of Taste of the Town.

Wine and dine at the Taste of the Town for 2022

Save the Date – Friday October 28, 2022

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.
