New Neighbors Oktoberfest & Live Auction

Each year, The Campagna Center reaches out to the community to help support the New Neighbors program through our Oktoberfest fundraiser.

On Monday, October 2nd, we return to Port City Brewing to bring you local brews, authentic bratwurst and German fare, and an evening of oom-pah-POW, all for a great cause!

Show your support for The Campagna Center and the New Neighbors program by becoming a member of the Oktoberfest Host Committee. We invite you to choose the contribution that is right for you from a wide menu of sponsorship opportunities. All donors who pledge their support will be considered members of this year's host committee, and will be recognized on our website and in all event materials.

Become a Sponsor and Host Committee member and show your support!

The New Neighbors program relies heavily on contributions to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of the many services the New Neighbors program provides.

Your sponsorship gives tuition, books, childcare, and family literacy services to families in our program!
