Cheeseburger in Paradise is back March 26

[December 22, 2010]  Parrot Heads, mark your calendars. On March 26 at 6 p.m. doors are opening at the Knights of Columbus for the fifth annual Cheeseburger in Paradise themed event to raise money for local senior rides and senior meals.

While the senior programs 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 to operate. As a matter of fact, the major funding source requires 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 event on March 26 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 of Community Action. "We’ve sold out the past four years so we encourage people to contact us right away for tickets." Tickets go on sale Jan. 3 for $25 each.

Businesses, organizations and 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.
