Benefit for Taylor Radtke on Saturday, February 27

This weekend, Saturday February 27, is the Radtke benefit in Johnsburg, Illinois at the Johnsburg Community Club. I am calling it the Radtke benefit as I have been told that the Kinney family is asking that any portion of the proceeds be donated to the Radtke family and after discussing it with the Lions, we will grant their wish. I think that is a very selfless act and my thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Saturday night will be the first time the members of Walla-Pa-Looza will volunteer along side the Johnsburg Lions. We will have live music from Peter & The Versatiles, 50/50 raffles, meat raffles and dart tournaments. A $5.00 donation is the entrance fee for an evening of fun.

Although we are serious about raising money for a family in need, during the event we will be celebrating two birthdays, one of my closest friends Sheryl Smith who has always busted her ass volunteering for Walla-Pa-Looza and a new friend Erin DeYoung. Please stop and wish them both a very Happy Birthday!

I am looking forwarding to seeing all of you this weekend.

  • First and foremost….Craig you are awesome and I am so glad I have you in my life. Walla Pa Looza has brought such happiness to me knowing what we have done to bring a very needed hand to so many people in more ways than one! We have the most incredible group of people that work together to make a difference and we have definately made a difference in our community. I can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort that you put into this and never ask for a thing from anyone in life. You are a go getter and your time and effort have paid off and I hope you can at one point …. relax (ya right!!! ) and sit and look in and see what you have created and I am so honored to be a part of it!

    Everyone, Please come out for a good cause and help raise some funds for a family that is in need!!!

    Hope to see you all there!!!
