[January 10, 2009]  Parrot Heads, mark your calendars. On March 21 at 6 p.m. doors are opening at the Knights of Columbus for the third annual Cheeseburger in Paradise themed event to raise money for local senior rides and senior meals.

While these services receive a grant from the Area Agency on Aging of Lincolnland and local support from the Logan County senior tax and United Way, the programs must find additional revenues annually in order to operate. As a matter of fact, the major funding sources require a show of local support through additional funding. All proceeds from this event are going to the Logan County and Mason County Senior Nutrition and Transportation programs that have been coordinated by Community Action for over 30 years.

The March 21 event at 217 N. Limit will feature Jimmy Buffett-inspired live musical entertainment by a new entertainer this year, "The World’s Most Dangerous One Man Band," along with a comedic performance from Mason City Limits Comedy Club. The event will feature as many cheeseburgers as you can eat, raffles, live auctions and more.

"We look forward to seeing everyone out having a great time as we support our local seniors," said Angela Stoltzenburg, executive director of Community Action. "We’ve sold out the past two years so we encourage people to contact us right away for tickets." Tickets are on sale now for $25 each.

Businesses, organizations and private individuals also have an opportunity to support the seniors through table sponsorships, raffle donations and the purchase of VIP table packages.

To find out more or to purchase tickets, call 217-732-2159, ext. 0. For more information, visit
