2nd ANNUAL OKTOBERFEST
This is a celebration benefitting local
High School Students
Reno South Rotary collaborate with local breweries and distributors for Oktoberfest event and fundraiser September 26, 2015 at Wolf Run
September 30, 2014 – Reno South Rotary hosted our Annual Oktoberfest celebration offering beer, wine, Bavarian food, live music and silent auction supporting the club’s Most Improved Scholarship Program benefiting high school students at all nineteen Washoe County high schools.
The Most Improved Student Program is one of the major programs sponsored by Reno South Rotary and is unique in its recognition of students who have overcome obstacles to position themselves for college or education in various professional trades. Each year, two students from each Washoe County High School are chosen for overall improvement in not just grades, but social skill, community service and those who have surmounted particular hardships in their personal and family lives. Selected students receive scholarships and attend a hosted luncheon for themselves and family or mentors.
At the Oktoberfest event, regional breweries offered unlimited tastings of seasonal brews and lagers to attendees. Breweries included Pigeon Head Brewery, Great Basin Brewery, Brasserie St. James and Lassen Ale Works in addition to wine pourings from Grace Patriot Winery. Wolf Run presented a food buffet from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. featuring sausage links and bratwursts from the Sausage Factory in Carson City in addition to beer breads and pretzels from Bavarian World among other German specialties. Live oompah music and contests entertained the crowd throughout the night.
“The Reno South Rotary is proud of it inaugural community fall event celebrating outstanding local beers and food while benefiting a very important cause,” said Adam Heuer, president of Reno South Rotary. “This event is the beginning of an annual tradition for Reno and will continue to build both community support and awareness of the Most Improved Student Program.”
