Burroughs Farms, 25356 Cooper Road, Morton
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 Auction, Wine Pull, Heads or Tails Game, and more.
This year, prior to 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 are being auctioned off to benefit the Morton Community Foundation's operating fund.
All completed chairs are currently on display at the Morton Public Library for everyone to see in person. Chairs can be purchased via our virtual auction (online auction) platform now through Friday night, November 9, at 8pm, the night before our Big Event, Saturday, November 10. All 32 chairs will then be displayed at our 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 Award" winner's charity of choice. Winning bidders may then take their chair(s) home with them at the end of the evening on November 10.
