The 30th Annual CP Auction, HOMEGROWN, is keeping it local and celebrating everything about the Badger state. From Chocolate and Cheese, to Beer and Old Fashioneds, you won’t want to miss this Wisconsin-made event on Friday, October 25th. Doors open at 6pm.
Featured local focus includes Badger State Brewing Company beer, BelGioioso cheese, Uncle Mike’s Kringle, Maplewood Meats, Seroogy’s Chocolates and a variety of other Dairyland originals. “And there is nothing more Wisconsin than the Green Bay Packers, so it’s great to be back at the Johnsonville Tailgate Village for the event,” said Callie Sherman, Director of Philanthropy for CP.
In addition, guests can come expecting a chef-inspired twist on all your favorite Wisconsin comfort foods, a unique interior makeover as Petal Pusher brings our local landscape indoors, a possible chance to show off your polka moves, and if you’re lucky, a guest appearance or two from some of Wisconsin’s Dairyland icons.
Of course, the auction will include exciting silent and live auction items to bid on throughout the night including trips, spa packages, gourmet foods, fun local experiences and a few creative surprises, auctioned off by fan favorite, Bill Jartz.
“Guests will also enjoy the opportunity to browse and purchase locally made crafts and treats from several local artists and artisans,” Sherman said.
She added that the Auction has always been a fun way to bring people together for a purpose. “Funds raised from Auction will support the therapy and life skills services CP provides to more than 2,100 people throughout Northeast Wisconsin each year. We are grateful that our community continues to show its support for CP year after year.”
