Festival Foods ‘Food, Wine, and Beer’ tasting event raises funds for Steppin’ Out in Pink

A night out in La Crosse is helping put an end to breast cancer.

Festival Foods held a Food, Wine, and Beer Tasting fundraiser for the Steppin’ Out in Pink breast cancer awareness walk.

There were more than 140 different types of wine and beer, along with sushi, and desserts for people to try.

With 100 percent of proceeds going to local breast cancer research, organizers say the outpouring of support is no surprise.

“I think anyone here living in this community knows how generous this community is. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, people are willing to give, and they want to get by behind something that is a great cause, keeping money here locally,” said Debbie Kroner from the Gundersen Medical Foundation.
