Tickets Still Available For Moraine Park Gourmet Dinner

Tickets are still available for the Moraine Park Foundation’s Gourmet Dinner, but they are going fast. Moraine Park Technical College President Bonnie Baerwald says it’s an excellent dinner that spotlights their culinary arts program. But it also benefits their scholarship program. She says, “More importantly it supports student scholarships. This is our one major fundraiser out of the year. We typically generate close to $30,000 to support students and allow them to come to college and earn some kind of higher education credentials to help them with their career.” Some of the money also goes into an emergency financial assistance fund for students. Baerwald says, “Folks probably don’t realize how significant those dollars are for folks that are in a low income bracket and some of those emergencies quite frankly force them to drop out of school.” The dinner on Friday 27th at the Fond du Lac campus features a “Garden Party” theme. Guests will be entertained by local talent, bid on great auction items and can try their luck at the popular wine cork pull and heads-or-tails 50-50 raffle. To make reservations call 920-924-3281. Tickets are $100 per person.
