WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - UW-Marathon County will celebrate 30 years of helping students this weekend in Wausau with the annual EATS fundraiser.
EATS is the Educational Assistance Through Scholarships program, and was started in 1983 to help worthy students get an education in Wausau. UWMC Foundation director Brad Zweck says there'll be plenty of things to do. "EATS has remained very popular, and it's a chance to have people on the campus and have a great time."
This year's event will feature over 35 area chefs and restaurants with soups, appetizers and entrees to taste, a wide selection of beer and wine from Trigs and Bull Falls Brewery, and some very special silent auction items. Zweck says it's their diamond anniversary, so they're going big. "We've got a $1000 gift certificate from Jim Kryshak Jewelers."
Tickets are still available in advance for $40, and you can find them online at www.uwmcEATS.com. The show gets started Saturday night at 6 pm.
