Society's Assets will be holding a Wine & Beer Tasting event on Monday, June 20, 2022 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the Civil War Museum in Kenosha, Wisconsin. All proceeds benefit the Society's Assets scholarship fund for college students with disabilities. Each ticket costs $25 and includes wine and beer samples, appetizers, and a door prize ticket. The event will also include live music, raffles, and a silent auction. Tickets must be purchased by June 15, 2022. To purchase, click on the link at the top of the home page on our website.

This new event continues the agency's fundraising efforts that have awarded more than $200,000 in college scholarships since 1998. Up to four awards for 2022 will be presented at the event.

Shannon Kafura, a scholarship recipient in 2016 and 2017, is the Chairperson of the event. She is also a Board member. She commented, "The scholarships I received from Society's Assets helped me manage college expenses. I was not eligible for many scholarships because my disability prevented me from participating in extracurricular activities and sports in high school." She continues, "I was born with a disability that makes my bones fragile and requires me to use an electric wheelchair. I was proud to be awarded the scholarships. I have graduated with honors and received a bachelor's degree in neuroscience."
