The $10 admission covers appetizers and live bands. There will be silent auction with a huge amount of items donated and tons of fun.  There are now 4 great bands playing during the evening. From 6 to 7pm New Savages will play; 7:30 to 9pm, Back Country Roads; 9 to 10pm,  Hitman Rockband and from 10:30 to 11:30, Stroker Red will take the stage.

Morgan Witmer, daughter of Mel and Debbie Witmer, owners of O’Learys, was a passenger in a horrible car accident that occurred as she was traveling from Sycamore High School to Kishwaukee College to attend nursing class. Morgan suffered a broken neck, two collapsed lungs, 6 broken ribs and many other injuries. She was flown via Lifeline to OSF in Rockford where she was in a medically induced coma for her injuries. They were not sure if Morgan would survive.

Yet with her strength and stamina she did wake up. She has paralysis on her left side and is recovering with daily physical therapy and working hard to be able to walk and function again. The medical bills have been tremendous and we are hoping our community will be able to help raise funds to help the Witmer family cover some of these costs. If you cannot attend please consider making a donation at
