September Updates from the Wisconsin Chapter

Join us for An Autumn Affair at Early-Bird Pricing!

An Autumn Affair Invitation 2019

Individual tickets and tables for our first-time cocktail soiree fundraiser are available online at, and early-bird pricing on individual tickets ends on Monday! Check out this promo video featuring our event chair, Casey White! Thank you, Just Your Way Media!

Instead of a sit-down gala dinner, the evening will feature a cocktail reception, heavy hors d'oeuvres, silent auction packages, games, a brief program, desserts and awards. In addition, IBD patients will share their compelling testimonials as our speakers, offering perspective and inspiration to our audience.

Individual tickets include unlimited food and drink, including specialty cocktail and multiple food and dessert stations. Table purchases also include seating for the evening.

For questions, information on sponsorship opportunities, or to sign up to volunteer, please contact Leslie Del Ponte at [email protected].
