The Twisted Willow Restaurant is pairing food with a good cause at its very first Farm to Fork Charity Experience on Friday, September 14 at 6 p.m. This amazing dining experience will benefit programs and services funded by United Way of Northern Ozaukee. Owner Jill Bunting, along with her brother Dan Wiken, chef and farmer, and their team have created a unique and delicious evening using freshly harvested ingredients from their very own local farm in Grafton, as well as local purveyors.
“The Twisted Willow has been involved in multiple fundraisers and supported various charities. We have worked with United Way on many events in a smaller scale. Celebrating our fifth year, we wanted to do a bigger charity event that would give back to the community that has supported us. Because the United Way offers so many channels of outreach, we are honored to partner with them for our Farm to Fork Charity Experience,” said Bunting.
A portion of each ticket for this event will be reinvested to strengthen local individuals and families through United Way’s result-driven programs. United Way partners with thirteen strategic partners to deliver critical services that help working families who are struggling to make ends meet, address the intensifying needs of an aging population, protect and advocate for the most vulnerable among us, and to ensure that young children can get a good start by providing early parenting and educational opportunities for children and families.
In addition to enjoying a wonderful evening of great dishes paired with fine wines, there will be a Port Washington hor d’oeuvre trolley tour ride, entertainment by a local celebrity, and a live auction and raffle throughout the night. The live auction will feature unique, one of a kind experiences such as a winter retreat near the Chequamagan National Forest on the Flambeau River, a week’s stay in Kissimmee Florida in an eight bedroom home, free four hour rental of the Port Exploreum Museum for a private party, and a table for four at Twisted Willow Restaurant’s 6th annual 6-course Harvest Feast.
