Records were broken this year at the 17th annual Taste of Washington County. The event held Dec. 2 at the Washington County Fair Park drew 1,004 people. “More than $140,000 was raised for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Washington County,” Jay Fisher, club executive director, said. “$67,000 was raised on the live auction, which was an all-time record for the 17-year history.”
Money raised will go for programming at four Boys and Girls Clubs locations for 3,000 kids in West Bend, Jackson, Kewaskum, and Hartford. Since the Taste of Washington County began, $1.5 million has been raised through the event benefitting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Washington County.
