Fundraising Events

All of our fundraising efforts support the Kyle Zuleg Foundation’s mission of providing scholarships to high school seniors and to also support organ donor families by providing blankets at a time of loss in hopes of providing warmth, comfort and support.

Thank you to Naper Settlement for supporting our fundraising efforts. Many Kyle Zuleg Foundation volunteers have helped us raise funds by providing great service to our beer tent customers at Naper Nights as well as Octoberfest. Come visit us at the beer tent again for Naper Nights on August 15th, 2020.
