Community Foundation to host disco ball in La Salle

Several auction items will raise money for the foundation’s grants, scholarships and funds

Starved Rock Country Community Foundation will award 10 scholarships to eligible students in the 2021 scholarship season.

How would you like to have a chance to win a weekend stay in the Big Apple, including airfare, a five-star hotel and a personal tour guide?

Or maybe you would like to put your money toward four seats at a Chicago Bulls game, with parking and $100 in spending money? What about a one-week vacation anywhere in the United States?

These are just three of the items available for bid at the live auction during the Starved Rock Country Community Foundation Disco Ball from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, at the Auditorium Ballroom, 109 Wright St., La Salle. The event includes music from the disco era, five food stations, a coffee and latte bar, dancing and a live auction.

Through the generosity of local individual and corporate donors, the Starved Rock Country Community Foundation provides grants, scholarships and disaster funds to non-profit, cultural and charitable organizations in Starved Rock Country, making it possible for them to benefit from the generosity of the community as a whole. Proceeds from the Stayin’ Alive Disco Ball will benefit the philanthropic endeavors by the SRCCF to meet the needs of those organizations within our community.

The Stayin’ Alive Presenting Sponsor, Eureka Savings Bank, is joined by Hometown National Bank; Geneva Holdings Group; Wheatland Title Company; Erin Stuedemann, Realtor/Broker, Coldwell Banker; Stuedemann Radon Resolutions; Chuck Beckett; Shaw Media; NRG Media; Starved Rock Media; Thee Ultimate Party and Annette Barr Photography.

Individual tickets are $100 and tables of eight can be purchased online at Donations are welcome. To become a sponsor or get more information, call Cathy at the Foundation office at 815-252-2906.
