Oktoberfest was held Saturday October 9, 2010 from 12-7 PM at the German American Social Club 11919 SW 56th St. Miami FL 33175.

Oktoberfest was a great success this year! Organizer Susan Schuler and Daniela George together with a large group of volunteers worked countless hours to put together the best Oktoberfest ever. A huge crowd gathered for fun, games and delicious German food and drinks. Melani Pauly organized a fabulous silent auction, and GIPA President Gustavo Zientek and friends rocked the house. Michaele Garcia has assembled an album of pictures from the event.

GIPA thanks everyone who participated for making the event such a great success. We raised almost $17,000 (about $3,000 more than 2009)! This is critical funding to enable our mission of supporting the German international language programs at Sunset Elementary, G.W. Carver Middle and Coral Reef Senior High schools.

It took many people to make this such an enormous success and GIPA wants to thank all the volunteers and our wonderful sponsors (click on the image below for a larger version of the full sponsors list) – it would not have been possible without you!
