Food Fight Against Cancer

Looking for a fun Friday evening out that will also benefit a great cause? Join friends of the FHN Leonard C. Ferguson Cancer Center for taste-tempting treats, live music, and fun at the Food Fight Against Cancer on Friday, April 5th at 6 p.m. at the Grand River Hall, 101 S. Liberty Ave., in Freeport!

Guests will dine on hors d’oeuvres and desserts from local caterers, restaurants, and bakeries and enjoy a cash bar. Spend your Friday evening listening to the music of Rockford's very own – Distilled. This acoustic duo plays a variety of music that is sure to get you dancing and singing along. All proceeds from the evening will benefit the FHN Leonard C. Ferguson Cancer Center, which provides leading, cutting-edge care close to home for Northern Illinois cancer patients. Tickets are $35 each, or $65 per couple and can be purchased by calling the FHN Foundation at 815-599-6441.

Listen to Tonya Meyer and Hilary Jordan talk about the event on the Dial-a-Doc radio show.
