Now in its fourth year, Everyone Thankful is an evening of food and fun designed to raise funds to provide Thanksgiving dinners for families in need. The event, to be held Saturday, October 16, 5:00 pm, has as its centerpiece a team trivia contest, hosted by Baig of Tricks Entertainment. A full barbeque dinner and gift basket raffles round out the evening. Funds raised at this event will directly benefit the local community. In past years funds from the event have been able to feed over two hundred families annually.
“Our name is also our goal,” says event organizer Carl Maeder. “We believe that the basic food relief system in the USA does a fair job for most days. However, on certain days, such as Thanksgiving, the menu calls for something more. On Thanksgiving Day we’d like to see every local household who wants to celebrate the great holiday be able to put a decent feast on their own table.”
Everyone Thankful is sponsored by the Elmhurst Elks Lodge and Sojourners Pub Church, with assistance provided by other local churches. Trivia teams and individuals may reserve a table in advance at [email protected] The suggested donation is $20 per person for the evening, cash and checks accepted. Everyone Thankful will be held at the Elmhurst Elks Lodge, 711 W. St. Charles Road, Elmhurst.
