[January 29, 2013]  On Saturday, March 23, at 6 p.m. doors will open at the Knights of Columbus in Lincoln for the seventh annual Cheeseburger in Paradise. This event raises money for local Community Action programs that serve area seniors and those living in poverty.

The evening will feature Jimmy Buffet-inspired live musical entertainment, all-you-can-eat cheeseburgers, raffles and a live auction.

Last year the event raised over $27,000 for Community Action. The goal this year is $35,000. The funds will benefit several programs, such as the Apple of My Heart nutrition program for seniors.

Having a table is a great way for a business or organizations to support Community Action programs and have a night of fun and food. The agency is also looking for auction and raffle donations.

Eight-person tables are available at two sponsorship levels: Flamingo Tables for $275 and ParrotHead VIP Tables for $350. Individual tickets are $35 each. The event is limited to the number of tickets available, so call to purchase or reserve your table. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 217-732-2159, ext. 0.
