CIEDC to host second annual Cheeseburger in Paradise fundraiser          Send a link to a friend

[July 02, 2007]  After a very successful event this past spring, CIEDC is announcing to the community and Parrot Heads to save the date of March 8, 2008. The event will be at the Knights of Columbus Hall, with doors opening at 6 p.m. and cheeseburgers served for all.

The second annual Cheeseburger in Paradise event will once again feature Gary Sluhan from St. Louis, who has perfected the sounds of Jimmy Buffett. Sluhan had the crowd singing along all evening and received rave reviews at the first event, in March this year. The Cheeseburger in Paradise event will again feature a live auction and raffles.

Funds raised will be used to assist the senior programs at CIEDC, as the Community Action agency works to provide delivered meals, congregate meals and transportation to the 60 and older populations of Mason and Logan counties.

Cheeseburger in Paradise night is made possible by volunteers and the support of local companies and the community. Tickets will be on sale to the public in January 2008 for $25 per person.

"The success of the first Cheeseburger in Paradise fundraiser has set the bar high for our second annual event. We look forward to another fun evening!" said Angela Stoltzenburg, CIEDC executive director. "The senior programs are doing better than ever financially, and we really need to keep that momentum going as fuel prices and demand for services continue to rise."

Central Illinois Economic Development Corp. is a private, nonprofit organization funded by federal, state and local dollars in order to provide necessary services to the low-income, elderly and disabled in the service area. CIEDC, a Community Action agency, currently provides services in DeWitt, Mason, Menard, Fulton, Logan and Piatt counties. For more information, visit
