Taste of Onalaska to raise funds for area schools

Event to be held Saturday

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – Taste of Onalaska will once again give community members the chance to support local schools while having fun.

The fundraiser coming up this weekend brings together area restaurants to raise funds for the Onalaska Education Foundation, and guests can also enjoy casino games and a live auction.

The 2019 Taste of Onalaska raised $12,000 in grants to teachers in schools in Onalaska.

That impact is felt throughout the community.

“It’s such a great cause to help increase the level the of achievement with students, that was basically the reason basically that it was founded. So I think this just leads to that and leads itself to the high quality education someone can get in the community of Onalaska,” said Jed Kees, Onalaska Education Foundation board member.

The Taste of Onalaska is this Saturday at the Stoney Creek Hotel in Onalaska.

Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.
