Annual Fundraiser Supports 804 Local Special Olympics Athletes


The annual Western Illinois Special Olympics Region F ‘Friday Night Lights’ dinner and auction will be held Friday, November 18th at Meks on Main in Monmouth from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm. M & E Catering will be preparing tailgating appetizers and a steak dinner. Raffles, a silent auction, and live auction will take place, with all proceeds benefitting the 804 athletes served in a ten-county area, says Assistant Director Jennifer Davis:

“Some of the bigger items in the live auction so far, we have a Galena getaway, we have some seed corn, designer purses, and Cubs tickets. We will also have tons of baskets. There will be something for everyone. This event always sells out, so typically tickets will not be available at the door.”

Tickets are $30 each or a table can be reserved for $280. For more details or to purchase tickets, contact the local Region F office at 309-734-5903 or search Special Olympics Illinois Region F on Facebook.
