Update: Email email@example.com or send us a message through this site if you need a last-minute reservation. We'll see what we can do - we are bursting at the seams! Online reservations have closed, but you still can purchase wine raffle corks and purple mystery treasure chests online until the event starts. (We even now have additional white treasure chests since attendance was higher than anticipated! Thank you!)
Hosted by the Friends of the Campus Board, the Grape & Gourmet Gala is a gourmet dinner with selected wines, a creative silent auction, and a brilliant live auction all to support student scholarships and programs at the University of Wisconsin-Baraboo Sauk County.
This year's event is held at Trappers Turn Golf Club in the Wisconsin Dells at 2955 Wisconsin Dells Parkway.
Guests can also enjoy the wine raffle (everyone is a winner) and the new purple mystery box fundraiser.
Do I need to bring paper tickets? No, we will have a listing of all pre-sales at the event.
Don't I have to select an entree preference? No, everyone will receive both steak and salmon.
What should I wear? This is an elegant event - guests often wear their best cocktail party attire. We've even (sometimes) had guests in gowns and gloves.
I've just won a great number of auction items. How will I get them to my car? Pull your car around to the entrance and student volunteers will assist you with loading your car.
Can I bid for someone who is not present at the event? Yes, but you have to have payment with you at the gala.
I want to bid for raffle items and purchase purple mystery boxes, but I don't have enough cash. Do you take credit cards or checks? Yes, you may use credit cards for all purchases during the evening. Please make checks payable to the Friends of the Campus, Inc.
How much of this is tax-deductible? Contact us if you would like a donor acknowledgement letter. Only $50 of the reservation is tax-deductible. Any amount you pay over the value of auction items is tax-deductible; we will include that if applicable in your letter. Donations directly to scholarships during the live auction are fully tax-deductible.
Is there a coat check? We have a coat room and student volunteers can take your coat if you wish. There are no coat check tickets.
