Event Description

Circus of Chefs … the Gala was held on Sunday, June 22, 2014. The finest chefs, brewmasters and vintners in south central Wisconsin worked their culinary magic, providing guests with tasty appetizers, delicious entrees, decadent desserts and refreshing beverages. Circus of Chefs … The Gala 2014 was the most stupendous, most colossal, most splendiferous fundraising event Circus World has ever experienced!

What Happens at the Gala?
Guests mingle with friends; sampling sumptuous savories and bidding on a gargantuan array of silent auction items, while live soft jazz provided by the Gem City Combo provides the ambiance. Guests purchase numbered corks, which they take to a cage wagon to claim their bottle of wine or liquor. Everyone is a winner in the cork sale, and some take home a truly exceptional wine or premium spirit. The evening culminates with an outstanding circus performance featuring Circus World’s galaxy of professional circus stars.

Outstanding Support for Circus World
In 2014, longtime table sponsors, supporters, chefs, restaurants, vineyards and breweries joined with newcomers in all categories and generated over $205,000 for Circus World through sponsorships, ticket and table sales, auction items and donations of goods and services.

This annual event provides unparalleled support for Circus World’s operations, performances and Library & Research Center services.

The theme for 2014 was a year-long celebration of 130 years of Baraboo’s Ringling Circus Heritage, and the event was organized by co-chairs Susan and Jonathan Lipp of Full Compass in Madison, and Jenele and Merlin Zitzner of The Baraboo National Bank in Baraboo. They worked along with a volunteer planning committee to make this event truly spectacular.
