A Lincoln group's biggest event is right around the corner and there are some changes this year that should allow for more participation from the community.
Community Action's Cheeseburgers in Paradise fundraiser has shifted from an event geared towards community businesses to an event open to the public. Breanne Titus and Katie Alexander with Community explains the event features all you cheeseburgers, a silent and live auction and live entertainment.
For Community Action, the Cheeseburgers in Paradise event is their biggest event of the year. Alexander says all the money the raise goes back into their programming, which is aimed to end the cycle of poverty.
Titus notes the event in year's past has been almost exclusive to the business community but this year Community Action has decided to open it up to the public in an effort to grow.
The event is April 16 at the Lincoln Banquet Center in Lincoln starting at 6 pm. For ticket information, visit capcil.info. Tickets are available and updates are made daily to the Cheeseburgers in Paradise event page on Facebook.
