Cheeseburger in Paradise is the social event of
the year and Community Action’s biggest fundraiser, generating an
average of $25,000 the last several years. Unfortunately, the 2020
event was cancelled due to the pandemic and was a great loss to the
agency. “This event is a fun night for our community supporters to
celebrate the agency’s impact and success. This event also provides
vital financial resources each year that help us maintain program
success, provide crisis or emergency services, and helps us through
challenging times including funding delays. This event is the
cornerstone of our agency fundraising efforts.” Said Director of
Agency Development, Breann Titus.
Guests enjoy all you can eat cheeseburgers, yummy chicken wings, and
delicious drink specials all while listening to live music provided
by J Christopher “The World’s Most Dangerous One Man Band”.
