Juice the Joint Fundraiser is a Roaring Success…

On Saturday, July 11, WBC and Family Services of Champaign County teamed up for a fundraiser at Jupiter’s at the Crossing. Over 120 people including flappers, cigarette girls, bouncers and gangsters attended our Juice the Joint Roaring 20’s Prohibition Party. Hooch was flowing, food was eaten and lots of gambling was going on-including Black Jack or Wheel of Fortune.   There were tons of door prizes and fantastic raffle items. Almost everyone went home with something! A keystone cop made some raids and people landed in the Family Service jail! Staske Photography captured important moments with mug shots.   Overall, “fun” was the name of the game and we earned some money for the senior transportation program at the same time. This wonderful event and its success was due to the hard work of our Fundraising Event Planning committee and many members of WBC.

At our August Luncheon, combined with proceeds from our Happy May Day fundraiser, we donated $4,100 to Family Service of Champaign County, which will help seniors receive transportation for medical appointments and other essential errands.

A big thank you to:

  • Event sponsors:   Big Grove Tavern, Fisher National Bank, Service Master, Tatman’s Car Care Collision Centers & Mattress Firm
  • Table Sponsors: Bags and Baubles, Busey Bank, Commerce Bank, Curves, Eastland Suites, GFI Digital, McGladrey LLP, Paparazzi, Rogards, State Farm, and Thirty One
  • All the individual and business donations for our door prizes and raffle items.

A special thanks to the members of the JTJ Planning Committee for putting together the event: Cindy Tarrant-Chair, Aimee Densmore-Executive Committee Representative, Tammy Asplund , Patricia Castor, Terry Goode , Deb Kiel , Morgan Merritt, and Michelle Trowbridge.

Thanks to Diane Ducey-our emcee from Stevie Jay radio, our DJ-Mike Ingram and our event photographer, Staske Photography for the Mug Shots!   We would also like to shout out to the News Gazette for a full page write-up about our event.
