As COVID cases rise in Illinois and Governor JB Pritzker's "bridge phase" remains a distant goal, a central Illinois non-profit is adjusting its annual fundraiser as they await approval to move forward.
Alison Rumler-Gomez is the executive director of Community Action and indicates Cheeseburger in Paradise - the organization's biggest fundraiser of the year - moving to June 5 for now.
According to Rumler-Gomez, organizers have thought about moving it outside but the threat of weather shutting down the event remains too risky.
Rumler-Gomez also points out they are creating a drive-thru option for people to swing through and pick up food and enjoy the entertainment from their vehicles while they wait. She hopes that option will be something popular to add to the event.
Rumler-Gomez indicates all their tables for the in-person portion of the event have sold out but you can get drive-thru and silent auction tickets at capcil.info.
