Annual Event Supports Superior Wisconsin Athletics Department
February can be kind of a lull month in the Twin Ports region. Sure, some events are happening, but usually with the less than favorable weather, there is a lot of stay inside time.
Perfect for this time of the year, are fundraising events that can be held indoors. Even better are the ones that put the spotlight on alcohol. Okay, for the one I'm going to be telling you about, the spotlight is on athletics and raising money for UW-Superior's Athletic Department, but alcohol is still involved.
The 12th Annual Yellowjacket Beer and Wine Showcase is on Thursday, February 9th at Barker's Island Inn, in Superior, WI. A twenty-five-dollar ticket will get you in the doors to this great event with vendors slinging beer, wine, and ciders. Of course, from local establishments.
Included in your ticket price are also hors d'oeuvres, and there will be a silent auction and raffles going on too. Starting at 5:30PM, you will find beer, cider, and wine options from Castle Danger Brewery, Bent Paddle Brewing, Earth Rider Brewery, South Shore Brewery, Ursa Minor Brewing, Wild State Cider, Hoops Brewing, and more.
To snag your tickets for this great fundraising event to support the UW-Superior Yellowjackets, there are plenty of places to get them. Keyport Liquor and Earth Rider are two places with them available, and also the Yellowjackets Athletic Office in the Marcovich Wellness Center, Room 2408. They also have a handy dandy online will-call form you can submit too.
Events like these on a Thursday night are a great reason to not feel so good the next day and call in sick to help out a good cause.
