It’s almost here! For the past two years, we have had an open invite Christmas Party, and it’s back again for 2014. The HOt rod HOliday HOedown is a Christmas party/Sockhop/Toy Drive all in one! We again have the World Famous Cadillac Casanovas playing all the great Rock’n'Roll and Rockabilly hits from the early 1950′s such as Elvis, Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent, The Everly Brothers and more! We will have a pot luck style dinner (please feel free to bring a dish!!). There will be an amazing Thowback Drink and Beer menu with drinks like the Vodka Gimlet, Big Mac Daddy, Harvey Wallbanger and beers like Schlitz, Blatz and Hamm’s! There will even be open bowling upstars after 10:30!!!
But, more importantly, the HoHoHo is a Toy/Food drive for An Angel’s Touch. An Angle’s touch is a federally recognized organization that was formed in 1991 to 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. They are a non-profit organization which depends on the generosity of others who are willing to donate their time, money and other resources to help those who are less fortunate. Last Christmas, with your help, they helped over 30 families, and more during the year. They also passed along Christmas joy to the Blue Island Nursing Home, Courage, Guildhaus, the Southwest YMCA, to the CEDA School in Blue Island, and other organizations. And each year, after Christmas, they pass our remaining canned food donations to the St. Benedict’s Parish Food Pantry and the Salvation Army.
We are proud to be working with An Angel’s Touch again this year. AND…. this year, as a little incentive for ya, everyone who makes a donation will receive a raffle ticket which may win ya one of a bunch of raffle prizes donated by our generous sponsors and club members. Our way of saying thanks.
We will also have a 50/50 raffle, in which all the proceeds go to An Angels Touch as well.
The current list of items needed can be found HERE.

Cost is $10 and donations are strongly encouraged
