[January 21, 2017]   LINCOLN - Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois will be hosting their 12th Annual Cheeseburger in Paradise fundraiser on April 22nd, 2017 at the Lincoln Banquet Center in Lincoln.

In true Jimmy Buffet style, Cheeseburger in Paradise offers an island theme of fun for attendees every year. From leis to margaritas, to the One Man Band and auction items, this fundraiser is a highly anticipated event for CAPCIL and their supporters. This year all proceeds from the event will go to support the whole agency.

CAPCIL works with those with limited income, the homeless, the home bound, and the hungry, not just because they need help, but because they have value and worth to offer to our community. Thatís why CAPCIL provides first class education to children in our community currently living in poverty, scholarships for undergraduate and technical training degrees to those who could never afford a higher education on their own, transportation to those that are homebound, and delivering meals to seniors in our community who would otherwise go hungry.

CAPCIL is currently seeking auction items for their fundraiser. This is an excellent way to promote your business while supporting a charitable organization. They are looking for items for the live auction as well as the Big Kahuna Raffle and silent auction. Last year attendees left with a Yeti Cooler, Coach Bag, furniture, original stained glass, Budweiser collectible items, and a myriad of other amazing items. CAPCIL greatly appreciates the support this community has given and is looking forward to hosting another memorable event.
