E.A.T.S. 20th Anniversary - Saturday, November 5, 2016

About EATS


Visit the E.A.T.S. Website to purchase tickets, learn about the chefs, auction packages and more.

Since 1997, guests have gathered to sample wonderfully creative dishes prepared entirely by numerous volunteer community chefs in an evening filled with food, wine, entertainment, and grand silent auction all in support of student scholarships at UW-Fox Valley. More than 50 local celebrity, professional, and community chefs show off their culinary skills, and “Community Celebrity Chefs” compete for the title of Top Chef!

E.A.T.S. has raised more than $678,000 for the campus scholarship program since its inception in 1997.   The 19th annual fundraiser raised $78,000—the biggest year ever—all of which will benefit UW-Fox Valley students through scholarships.
