The Northwoods Children’s Museum (NCM) will co-host a Woodland Masquerade fundraising event with the Outdoorsman Restaurant on Saturday, October 13th in Boulder Junction, WI
“Amy Wheeler, owner of the Outdoorsman and museum visitor, approached us with an idea that would help support the museum,” said Rouleen Gartner, executive director of the Northwoods Children’s Museum. “Amy offered to do what she does best and will generously open her restaurant for a private seven-course gourmet meal, all in the spirit of play.”
The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres. Each of the seven courses will be paired with a selection of wine that enhances the flavor of the food. A variety of options are available for the main course: roasted duck with raspberry sauce, chicken marsala with portabella mushrooms, wild mushroom ravioli with roasted red pepper coulis, or applewood smoked pork loin. A full menu can be obtained by visiting the museum’s website at NorthwoodsChildrensMuseum.com.” target=”_blank”>www.NorthwoodsChildrensMuseum.com.
Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items and participate in a variety of raffles. All proceeds generated will benefit the museum and every guest will take home a unique, handmade woodland masquerade mask.
“We are really looking forward to this event, as we are able to offer an all-inclusive meal for such a low ticket price. This is a great chance for parents and grandparents to have a special, memorable night out at an affordable price while supporting the museum and doing a great thing for their community,” said Gartner.
Tickets for the event are $50 each and are available at the Northwoods Children’s Museum, the Outdoorsman Restaurant, the Salon and Spa on Railroad Street in Eagle River and the Boulder Junction Chamber of Commerce. Tickets must be purchased in advance for the preparation of the meal and will not be available at the door.
