NEWS RELEASE:
Beer, Brats, and the Chicken Dance!

Oktoberfest Tickets On Sale: Sept. 7!

You won’t want to miss it! This year will be even bigger and crazier, with more dancing, more entertainment, and more chance for you to enjoy the fun, music and unique flavors of this iconic German festival. Oktoberfest is the primary fund-raising event for the Scholarship Committee which provides scholarships to young women in our area. At least four scholarships will be awarded to high school students who are headed to community college or trade programs as well as to adult women who are going back to school to learn a new skill.

The Women of Quail Creek’s Oktoberfest will offer something for everyone. Like to dance? We’ll start the evening with a rousing Chicken Dance, followed by polka and line dancing. If you’re a little rusty in your polka skills, take heart! A short polka class will be offered, as well as quick instruction for a special line dance that will pair nicely with the oom-pah music from the crowd-pleasing “Bouncing Czechs” band.

Do you like a good brewski or Hofbrau House-style food?

Then purchase a special Quail Creek logo pilsner glass ($8) and your first fill-up of German-style beer is free. Your ticket ($30) provides you with a dinner of brats, German potato salad, pretzels and a yummy apple strudel for dessert. In addition to the music, dancing, and an all-around good time, there will be plenty of chances to win great prizes. Bring your checkbook as over 50 gift baskets will be raffled, as well as the ever-popular 50/50 cash raffle and even a silent auction for more great prizes.

Finally, as if all this wasn’t enough, the Scholarship Committee is putting together a zany skit called, “Handsome and Girdle.” You simply must see it to believe it.

The fun begins…

… on Sunday, October 14 at 5:30 in the Madera Clubhouse Ballroom. Tickets (available starting Sept. 7) will be sold for a spot at an assigned table so if you want to sit with friends, buy your tickets soon! Watch the TWOQC’s website or this page for specific ticket sales dates and times.
