Oktoberfest PTO Charity Event set for Sat., Oct. 13

CAVE CREEK – Parents, teachers and supporters of eight area schools are invited to the Oktoberfest PTO Charity Event at Harold’s Cave Creek Corral on Sat., Oct. 13. The traditional Oktoberfest celebration features an authentic German buffet, a Bavarian beer garden and wine tastings and plenty of fun from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Live music will feature the band, Die Echten Waldbuam on tour from Germany. Net proceeds will benefit eight local Parent Teacher Organizations (PTOs).

“Come enjoy delicious German fare and sample 20 wines and 40 beer craft and imported beers,” said Danny Piacquadio, owner of Harold’s Cave Creek Corral. “Thanks to the generous support of the Kiwanis Club of Carefree, we’re also planning a German costume contest, a stein holding competition and many other traditional games and activities.”

Last year’s event attracted 600 guests and raised more than $9,000 for the PTOs.

Tickets for adults 21 and over cost $25 per person. Each ticket includes the German buffet and four tickets for wine and beer samples. Net proceeds benefit the eight PTOs.

Advance tickets are available at Harold’s Corral, online at www.haroldscorral.com and through each of the PTOs. Tickets also will be available at the door.
