The Scholarship Luncheon is held in November on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The event features a gourmet meal and professional entertainment. Club members sell tickets, organize gift baskets, and bake desserts to make this event a success. Monies raised at the Scholarship Luncheon enable the Oshkosh Garden Club to give two $1000 scholarships annually to qualified local students.
The 2018 event features "Music in the Garden” with musical entertainment by Joe Scheibinger and Janice Marie. Joe is well-known locally for his radio show on KFIZ, Fond du Lac. He and Janice met on the show 14 years ago and have been performing together ever since. The duo plays all kinds of music - from rock to jazz to country - and entertains at festivals and private events across the state of Wisconsin. Floral design by talented Oshkosh designer, John Rogge, will also be featured, as well as the delightful patter of our favorite auctioneer, Nate Weyenberg.
The menu for the afternoon includes choice of meat or vegetarian lasagna. Roasted breast of chicken is available for those who require a gluten-free option. All entrees include fresh garden salad, dinner rolls, choice of beverage (coffee, iced tea or milk) and dessert cake.
In addition to a delicious meal, the Scholarship Luncheon offers guests an opportunity to win some fabulous prizes. Local businesses have joined the Garden Club in support of the scholarship program through donations of money, goods, and services. Donations, including this beautiful sterling silver, dendritic agate and garnet necklace, will be auctioned and raffled during the event.
Tickets for the 2018 Scholarship Luncheon are $25. Seating is limited and advance tickets are required.
