GRILLED fundraiser and Silent Auction - Feed'em Soup DeKalb

Start Date: May. 17, 2013
Time: 11:00 AM

GRILLED is coming! 2nd Annual GRILLED Fundraiser and Silent Auction Thinking about summer and especially fresh cuts of meat and veggies on the grill? That's exactly where we drew inspiration for our 2nd annual fundraiser - GRILLED. On Friday May 17th 2013 we will be grilling up four gourmet skewers custom created by Chef Alex Smith. Included will be Habenero BBQ Pork, Raspberry Citrus Chicken, Chimichurri Beef and Garden Veg. This year's installment of GRILLED will also feature a silent auction to raise funds for Lexi's Kids Corner. Lexi's Kids Corner is a program that runs on meal days from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm and is open to children of all ages. Staffed by Feed'em Soup volunteers, the program is free of charge and is open to anyone. Each week, the program follows a particular theme and features a story and an art project, science experiment, game or other activity aimed at being fun yet educational. Lexi's Kids Corner is named after Lexi Weber, a founding volunteer of our project whom we lost in a tragic car accident in February of 2011. Lexi was an NIU Student studying to become a teacher. The program is named in her honor as we hope to continue her mission and be a positive influence in the lives of children. 100% of funds raised through the silent auction will help keep the doors to Lexi's Kids Corner open for all of the children that attend our meals. Funds will also allow us to continue toward expansion of our offerings to the community in the future. The silent auction will feature items from: Walt Disney World Arlington International Racecourse Marriott Theatre - Lincolnshire The Rockford Ice Hogs The Chicago Wolves The Laugh Factory Milwaukee Food Tours Capital Brewery - Middleton Wisconsin Buena Vista Golf Course Sycamore Park District and more! Grilled tickets are $10 each. Kids 5 and under are free. Tickets go on sale April 5th, 2013. Tickets are NOT required to participate in the silent auction. Bidding will open at 11am and continue until approximately 8pm. Bidders need not be present to win. ### For more information contact Derek Gibbs, Executive Director at or by calling 815 310 0903.
