DAV Chapter 13 Seeking Sponsorships for Operation: Cabin Fever 3 Event March 25

The Oshkosh Chamber is a proud co-sponsor of this event

The Ray H. Fuller, Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Wisconsin Chapter 17 in Oshkosh and Winnebago County will be hosting a fund-raising event entitled “Operation: Cabin Fever 3”. This event will take place at the Oshkosh Convention Center in Oshkosh, on Saturday, March 25, 2023.  The mission of the Disabled American Veterans is to empower veterans to lead high quality lives with dignity and respect. DAV is a non-profit 501 (c) (4) organization that is dedicated to the service of our injured veterans.  The “Operation: Cabin Fever 3” goal is to raise funds that would specifically go toward local Veterans enhancing their mental health due to participation in therapeutic recreation programs.

2023 Map Ad.jpg

A new full-color printed and online interactive map of Oshkosh is now in production. We are again partnering with chamber member NovoPrint USA, Inc. to produce the map, which will be updated to reflect our growth and showcase our community. This map is a great tool to communicate information about your business to residents, other businesses and visitors. Your business will be located directly on the printed map.

ONLY Chamber members are eligible for this opportunity. As an advertiser, your business will reach more than 10,000 individuals through a low-cost-per-view advertising and will be positioned as a community leader and a community supporter. The Chamber distributes these maps daily in response to inquiries and to give directions to specific business or residential locations – in fact; it’s one of the main printed publications that are included in EACH informational packet we sent out.


To find out more about this project, or to schedule a personal appointment to discuss this project, please contact our NovoPrint representative, Jennifer Salfer, at (262) 212-9260, or email her at [email protected]. You can also contact the Chamber directly at (920) 303-2266.
