The Friends are a volunteer organization of community representatives many of whom are alumni of the UW-Platteville-Baraboo/Sauk Co.
For the past 20 years the Friend’s main fundraiser has been the Grape and Gourmet Gala, a spectacular evening featuring gourmet food and award-winning wine tasting. The Gala includes moving testimonials from scholarship recipients, a live auction and a wine raffle.
When it comes to supporting our programs, fundraising events are not enough. For this reason, the Friends hold an Annual Fall Fund Drive for scholarships and other campus needs. The need for student financial assistance has never been greater.
