Event Overview:
Are you man enough? Current has setup a team to encourage our members to join this effort to support our corporate member, Golden House. What’s the most macho way to take a stand against domestic violence and sexual assault? Try walking a mile in high heels. You think that’s funny? We challenge you to give it a try. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is the international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence. In Green Bay, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes will benefit the Brown County Community Coordinated Response Team (CCR) a partnership formed by Golden House, Family Services, the Sexual Assault Center and other key community organizations with the mission of raising awareness of, and preventing domestic violence and sexual assault. Male walkers can borrow a pair of our man-sized high heels available on a first come, first served basis or you can bring a pair of your own. Our lady walkers are encouraged to enjoy the comfort of their own walking shoes.

Event Overview Red, White & Brew: Beer vs. Wine Tapas PairingIt’s a Battle Royale to settle the dispute that has been brewing (pun intended) for quite some time, does wine or beer pair better with food?

We’ve arranged tapas pairings that will feature four courses of different and distinct types of food, each artistically paired with a wine sample from Captain’s Walk Winery and a beer sample from Badger State Brewing Company.

As each course is served, our wine and beer experts will share insights about the flavors offered by each of their offerings and how they enhance the overall quality of the food pairing experience.

Leave your bias at the door as this is an evening designed for culinary exploration, to push you from your palate comfort zone and to try a spectrum of flavors that will make your mouth burst with eccentricity.
