Food for Thoughts Fundraiser at Lilly's

Edit Delete
This back to school bash is a fundraiser for the Hancock County Food for Thoughts. There will be sandwiches, soft drinks, frozen yogurt, and popcorn for sale from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM. A movie (TBD) will be shown at Lilly’s outdoor theater beginning at 8:30 PM, and patrons are encouraged to bring a lawn chair. Admission is $5.00/adult and $2.00/child 12 years and under. 

Hancock County Food for Thoughts is a weekend food pack program for children in the Carthage Elementary School District, the Illini West High School District, and The Hancock County Academy. Food packs are distributed to students who may otherwise experience hunger over the weekend. Food for Thoughts also matches students with a senior citizen mentor to help build students’ self-esteem and confidence. 

The mission of Lilly’s Frozen Yogurt is dedicated to the Food for Thoughts Program and non-academic scholarships for children. All proceeds from the Back to School Bash will go to Hancock County Food for Thoughts.
