Clintonville Area Foundation fundraiser set for Oct. 13

A “Night With the Stars” is the theme for the Clintonville Area Foundation’s ninth annual fundraiser, which will be held Oct. 13 at the Clintonville Riverside Golf Club. Attendees can dress in business casual attire or come in costume, dressed as their favorite “star.”

Rather than a formal, sit-down banquet, the evening will feature a casual gathering, starting with cocktails at 6 p.m. A strolling dinner with several stations, abundant appetizers and desserts will follow, along with a silent auction. Following the dinner, the foundation will announce the winner of the annual Community Hero Award, as well as recent benefactors of the Clintonville Area Foundation grants.

“A lot needs to happen in the next six weeks before the event to assure a success. Fortunately, everything is falling into place nicely, thanks to the hard work of the members of our fundraiser committee,” said Joanne Doornink, foundation chairperson. “This is a fun event that has a serious purpose: to raise money to help our community.” The event is the only annual fundraiser for the foundation, which this year distributed $23,560 in grants and scholarships to the Clintonville community.

Reservations are $75 per person, and the deadline for registration is Sept. 28. For information, call Doornink at 715-781-2981.
