Nearly 125 people expanded their palates AND gave a helping hand to Angel On My Shoulder at the first Taste of Heaven Beer and Cheese Tasting, held recently near Milwaukee.
The October 17th event was held at Sprecher Brewery in the Milwaukee suburb of Glendale. Sprecher produces an assortment of micro-brewed craft beers and premium sodas.
The evening featured beer and cheese pairings, with 8 samples of Sprecher’s award-winning beers paired with different Artisan gourmet cheeses.
The highlight of the evening was the highly successful and equally raucous live auction with Green Bay Packer legends Gilbert Brown, William Henderson and Lynn Dickey as the evening’s guest auctioneers. Gilbert, William and Lynn “coaxed” (as only those three can!) guests into bids for such great items such as a Clay Matthews autographed jersey, a packer helmet autographed by 8 Packer quarterbacks and many other one-of-a-kind items.
Hors d’oeuvres, raffles and live music by Mustache Molly rounded out the evening. The evening was the first of its kind AOMS fundraiser for the Milwaukee area.
Organizers also wanted to give a big shout out to the event’s Gold Sponsors whose support was instrumental in making the evening happen. They are: Auxiant, Johnson Timber, WCA Services, Inc., Serve You Custom Prescription Management and Discover Mediaworks.
