Local Knights of Columbus Council No. 12510 is hosting its annual St. Alphonsus Oktoberfest and charitable raffle to build community while supporting local charities. The event takes place Saturday, October 6 when doors open at 6:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Saint Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church at 1870 W. Oak St. Admission is $5 for adults 21 years and older. All proceeds will benefit the Zionsville Food Pantry, The Caring Center and other Knights of Columbus charities. Last year’s occasion raised $17,000 in charitable support.
Deemed as “The Best Night Out in Zionsville,” the annual Oktoberfest has attracted more than 600 guests to this evening of fun while building awareness and support for charitable causes. The event will feature a large tent filled with specialty foods, local brews, raffle drawings, a festive bier garten, dancing and live music by the Alpine Express Band.
One favorite of the evening is the annual Oktoberfest raffle that places contestants into a drawing for grand prizes of $1,500, $500 and $250. Raffle tickets are $10 each or three for $25, and can be purchased at the door or early by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to an entertaining evening, Oktoberfest offers event sponsorship opportunities for local businesses to join the support for charities. Sponsorships range from $150 to $1,500 and include a number of ways to showcase companies to a captive audience. Sponsorship information can be found at www.zionsvillecatholic.com/oktoberfest.
