[December 16, 2009]  Parrot Heads, mark your calendars. On March 13 at 6 p.m., doors are opening at the Knights of Columbus for the fourth annual Cheeseburger in Paradise event to raise money for local senior rides and senior meals.

While the program receives a grant from the Area Agency on Aging of Lincolnland and local support from the Logan County senior tax and United Way, the program must find additional revenues annually to operate the program. As a matter of fact, the major funding sources require a show of local support through additional funding. All proceeds of 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 themed event on March 13 will feature Buffet-inspired live musical entertainment by last year's entertainer, "J, 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. "We've sold out the past three years, so we encourage people to contact us right away for tickets." Tickets go on sale Jan. 4 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.
