  • DECEMBER 7

         It’s that time again.  The HOt rod HOliday HOedown has returned to Eagles Bowl!  Get those dancin’ shoes out because the Cadillac Casanova’s will once again be playin’ all the 1950′s Rock ‘n’ Roll and Rockabilly hits you know and love!  We will have a geat throwback drink menu again. 

         The HOt rod HOliday HOdown is a great family friendly party, but more inportantly it is a food and toy drive for a great charity, An Angels Touch.  An Angels Touch is from right here in Blue Island.  Formed in 1991, they assist working-class families in times of need. They recognize that misfortunes such as illness, job lay-offs and other unpredictable events can occur at any time and can be devastating to those involved. An Angel’s Touch therefore endeavors to bring comfort to those in need, whether by gifts of food, clothing, toys or other material comforts.

         We are glad to partner up with them again this year, and to be able to help local famlies in times of need.  Last year, with your help,  we raised over $500 cash, and THOUSANDS in food and toy donations!! 

    Cost is $10, and donations are encouraged.HoHoHo

  • Thank You!

         I would like to take this moment to thank everyone for their support for this years Romin’ the Island Car Party. Because of YOU we were able to raise $2257 for Blue Cap!!
         Over 100 cars came out and filled every square inch of space …we had! Lil Red and “The Howlin’ Wolves” ROCKED! People were talking about them all night.
         A huge Thank You goes out to all the Romin’ Chariots and Romin’ Chariettes that stepped up and got things done when it was needed. And, all the Voodoo Kings Car Club Illinois, Five Aces Motor Club, and Blacktop Barons who helped out as well. Thank you to ALL the clubs, and lone wolves who came out to help raise money and awareness for Blue Cap.
         Thank you to all our sponsors, and raffle contributors!! With out you, we really would not be able to put in this show! We were able to put this show together without having to take anything off the top to pay for it. ALL the money raised went straight to Blue Cap.
         Each year I am truly humbled by all the support we get. I hope to see each and everyone of you at next years show. It’s going to better then ever!
