Kenosha, WI – October 3, 2017 – The Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha has announced that the 23rd Annual Natalie Troha’s Pride of Kenosha gourmet food & wine tasting event will be the final Pride of Kenosha event.

Mrs. Natalie Troha will be in attendance at the Farewell Pride of Kenosha, which will be hosted the 3rd week of November on Friday, November 17th from 6 – 9pm at Marina Shores in downtown Kenosha. Tickets cost $55 and will be on sale beginning October 9th. The event includes gourmet food, wine tastings, raffle prizes and a silent auction.

BGCK CEO, Jake McGhee, expressed his gratitude for Natalie Troha’s commitment to this event and the entire family’s commitment to the Club, “Natalie’s Pride of Kenosha has been one of the Club’s biggest fundraisers on an annual basis for nearly a quarter century. Her passion and enthusiasm for supporting Kenosha’s youth remains as it did 23 years ago and we’re so grateful for all they do for the Club.”

The first Pride of Kenosha event was held in 1994. The Pride of Kenosha fundraiser has raised more than $400,000 for the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha and has drawn over 9,000 attendees over the past 22 years.
