Crummer Oktoberfest Scholarship Fundraiser

Join Crummer students, friends, faculty, staff, and fellow alumni for a party like you have never experienced before!

This Oktoberfest is an exclusive fundraising event just for the Crummer School. The event includes a 4 course German meal, incredible entertainment by Oktoberfest musicians, and distinguished members of the Crummer community as your table "celebrity servers." Costume changes, dancing, and singing are just the beginning as the celebrity servers compete with each other to collect Crummy Money tips from their guests. All tip money raised will be donated to the Crummer Scholarship Fund. The server who raises the most money wins the coveted "Crummy Cup" trophy!

In addition, the celebrity servers have a goal of raising $10,000 during this year's Oktoberfest Scholarship Fundraiser so expect lots of silly antics to persuade guests to give up their Crummy Money!
