The 3rd Annual U.S. Bank Night of Giving, which supports the Grafton Education Foundation, is set for Friday, May 13th at the Ozaukee Nonprofit Center in Grafton. Last year's virtual event was a huge success, and we owe it all to our district families and community support.

This year's event is back to in-person and will be a fun-filled, action-packed evening of beer and wine tastings, silent and live auctions, music and our thrilling $10,000 Reverse Raffle (one person has a 1/250 chance of walking away with $10,000 cash!).  Also, new this year, we will be announcing the winners of the Grafton Educator of the Year Golden Apple Award and the 2022 Grant Winners.

Tickets to the event are $50 and include: heavy appetizers and tastings of over 15 wines from Delicato and 8 beers from Sahale and The Fermentorium.

To date, we have awarded over $450,000 in grants supporting our schools. With your support and 100% of this event's proceeds benefiting the GEF, we are hopeful we can reach more than $550,000 in 2022!
