For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Food for Thought 2017 will be held on April 1 from 6-9 p.m. at the University of Wisconsin-Marshfield/Wood County. This annual fundraising event for the University Foundation has brought together food, entertainment, auction items, and hundreds of campus friends every year for the past 16 years.
Food for Thought features a variety of appetizers, soups, entrees, and desserts prepared and donated by local volunteer chefs.
“The event allows us to highlight the talent of home chefs while supporting education in our community,” said Marsha Oberg, chef coordinator. “There is something for everyone, and nobody will go away hungry.”
Throughout the evening guests can also bid in the silent auction or take part in basket raffles. More than 40 unique items and baskets have been donated by businesses and individuals in the community. Proceeds from the event fund scholarships, undergraduate research, and professional development.
This year’s entertainment will feature the sounds of Hub City Jazz.
General admission tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door, which includes a tax-deductible donation. Register online at marshfield.uwc.edu/food-for-thought, or call 715-384-1703 to make reservations.
