[January 13, 2021]   LINCOLN - Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois (CAPCIL) hosts Cheeseburger in Paradise fundraiser on May 1st, 2021 at the Lincoln Banquet Center from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

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”. Sponsorships and tickets for Cheeseburger in Paradise sell quickly and is always a sold out event. The event also boasts a live auction, silent auction, Big Kahuna raffle, and 50/50.
