Fundraiser to support Farm Fresh Atlas of SE Wisconsin

A fundraising dinner will be held on Saturday, Sept. 11, to help sustain the Farm Fresh Atlas of Southeastern Wisconsin, a guide that connects residents with local farmers, farmers’ markets and locally owned and operated businesses and organizations.

“The Atlas is supported primarily through listing fees,” said Rose Skora, Agriculture Educator for Kenosha Counties UW-Extension. “We are looking for ways to maintain the fees for local farmers and businesses, even though the costs to publish the Atlas are increasing."

The dinner at Oconomowoc Lake Club will start with a silent auction and hors d’oeuvres showcasing the produce and products of local farmers and businesses. At 7:30 p.m., a dinner using locally-sourced food prepared by Oconomowoc Lake Club Chef Jack Kaestner will be served.

Dinner is $65 for individuals 13 and older; $45 for youth between six and twelve; and children under age five eat for free by sharing a meal with an adult. Tickets can be purchased online or ordered by  mail. For more information or to request a ticket order form, contact Rose Skora at (262) 857-1948 or .
