Come join the East Peoria St. Jude runners at EP's Time Out Sports and Entertainment Eatery at 1011 E. Washington St in East Peoria on July 14 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and help them raise money for the hospital.
It costs $10 for adults and $5 for children ages five to 12 with any child under five eating for free.
The outdoor grill opens at 5 p.m. and they will be grilling hamburgers, hotdogs and ribeye sandwiches to go with homemade potato chips and baked beans. The grill food is covered under the ticket price and the restaurant will still be open and operating during the event.
This is the first year for the event and they are trying to incorporate more families and not just adults into the fundraising said Jackie Harrmann, event supervisor.
"We are hoping for several hundred people to attend and make it an annual event," said Harrmann. "We hope to raise a couple thousand dollars if things go right and people show up."
There will be games going on through the event such as basketball, shuffle board and bags with a talent show topping off the night starting at 7 p.m.
Tickets are not needed but Harrmann has some for those who want one. If you have any questions or want a ticket you can contact Harrmann at 309-635-9179.
