ONALASKA, Wis. - A fundraising event in Onalaska Saturday aimed to make sure teachers have the tools they need.

The Onalaska Education Foundation hosted the eighth annual Taste of Onalaska event, complete with nine food vendors and a silent auction.

The goal was to earn at least $12,000 to go toward grants for Onalaska teachers to cover supplies they need in the classroom that the regular budget doesn't cover.

"Everyone wants excellence in their own schools, and we believe if our teachers are supported and have the tools they need, that will be the effect," Onalaska Education Foundation President Jackie Strutt said.

Possible grants range from tools for a garden to music supplies to robotics technology.

The theme of the event was casino night.
