This Fall our Big Event fundraiser will have a Hawaiian theme... "Mahalo Luau", which means literally, "Thank You Party". We hope you'll add this to your calendar and plan to attend. We'll have a delicious meal, desserts, and drinks with a Luau theme, as well as a Live Chair-ity Auction, Wine Pull, and more.
This year, during our event, we're having our first-ever Chair-ity Auction. With the help of volunteers and clients of Peoria Rescue Ministries, 32 wooden Adirondack style chairs were built for us (CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE), were distributed to local groups/artists to be painted, and then will be auctioned off to benefit the Morton Community Foundation's operating fund.
As the chairs are completed, we will be featuring them on this site, so you can begin to see which chairs you might like to bid on. All but 5-6 of the chairs will be displayed and auctioned off using our online silent auction platform beginning during the Morton Pumpkin Festival (Wednesday, Sept 12). Bidding will end just prior to our Big Event, Saturday, November 10. The remaining 5-6 chairs will be auctioned during our Live Auction at the Mahalo Luau event. All 32 chairs will be displayed at the event, and attendees will vote for their favorite(s), as a "People's Choice Award." The Morton Community Foundation will give a grant to the "People's Choice Awards" winners'.charity of choice.
Ticket pricing and ordering information will be available soon. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to be sure you receive information about how to attend, click below and fill out the form...
