Everyone needs one lavish evening a year

Camp Winnebago is hosting its 5th Annual Puttin’ On The Ritz fundraising event Saturday, Oct. 20 and will feature the very lively, toe-tapping entertainment of Dueling Pianos.

This year’s event is themed “Sapphire Celebration” in honor of the camp’s 45th anniversary year.

The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour and appetizers and is followed by a 6:30 p.m. gourmet meal, wine, silent auctions, music, dancing and, of course, Dueling Pianos.

Tickets for Puttin’ On The Ritz are on sale now at Eitzen State Bank in Caledonia and Eitzen, Merchants Bank, Elsie’s Bar & Grill and through Camp Winnebago.

Tickets are $50 for singles, $80 per couple and $500 for a table. Table sponsors receive priority seating, recognition at the table and on the program and recognition in Camp Winnebago’s annual newsletter. All proceeds benefit Camp Winnebago who has been serving the needs of adults and children with varying abilities for 45 years.
