On September 15th Alicia’s House Food Pantry will celebrate their 10th Annual Alicia’s House Celebrity Golf Outing, at Lincolnshire Country Club (390 East Richton Rd., Crete, Illinois), followed by a fabulous dinner and a huge silent and live auction.

Last September (2011) Alicia’s House Food Pantry closed out their week of celebrity charity events with donations totaling over fifty thousand dollars to help feed the needy. The week of fundraising started out with Actor/Director/Humanitarian Scott L. Schwartz returning to WGN for an interview, making a first time appearance on NBC’s “The Talk” and visiting the South Chicago Heights Fire Department in Steger, IL. Later in the week Milt Pappas (Legendary All Star Chicago Cubs Pitcher) joined Kevin “The Butcher” Hughes and Scott L. Schwartz at Rasberry’s Pancake House for “Tip A Star” and Aurelio’s Pizza.

The week of charity events ended at Lincolnshire Country Club for a day of golfing with the stars, dinner and silent auction. Some of the silent auction items included: Michael Jordan autographed picture, Mickey Mantle autographed baseball, Derek Jeter autographed picture, Michelle Monroe handbag, Other celebrity supporters included: Yoko Ono, The Chicago Cubs, White Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks and Bears. Top sponsors included: Goldie’s Auto Body (Mechanical & Towing) in Beecher, Aurelio’s Pizza (Crete), Desiderio Landscaping, Enterprise, Quality Inn (Bradley), Country Financial (Steger), Thrivent Financial for Lutheran and Winpak Portion Packaging.

Thanks to their supporters, in 2011 Alicia’s House fed 4728 families, 17,616 people, and distributed 194,450 pounds of food. This year with our economy the way it is, they have seen an increase of over 28% in the amount of individuals they are helping. Alicia’s House is totally supported by donations from individuals, businesses, and their various fundraisers. All of the money raised goes directly to feed the hungry and run the pantry; no one at Alicia’s House is paid.

Their mission is to ensure their quality program continues to make a difference in the lives of the people they serve. To maintain this caliber of service they need your help.
