Guests Enjoy 2nd Annual Pig Roast
Quinn Johnston proudly hosted a pig-roast benefit in September to support the Neighborhood House Meals on Wheels program. The family-oriented fundraiser took place at Ravina on the Lakes in Peoria. Quinn Johnston underwrote all of the event’s costs so that 100% of collected proceeds would directly benefit Meals on Wheels. This long-running community program serves over 900 hot meals per day to seniors and disabled persons in Peoria, rural Peoria County and Tazewell County.
During the weeks leading up to the event, Quinn Johnston employees participated in a Silent Auction, also to benefit Meals on Wheels. Employees donated items to the auction. These items included a drawing by a local artist, handmade jewelry, homemade cakes and dessert toppings, and tickets to events at the Peoria Civic Center. Guests who attended the Pig Roast were encouraged to put donations in special piggy banks that served as table centerpieces. The Silent Auction and the Pig Roast raised $1,900 to help support Meals on Wheels. The guests included Quinn Johnston staff members, many of the law firm’s valued clients, and also friends of Neighborhood House.
Founded over 117 years ago, Neighborhood House is dedicated to provided comprehensive services that meet the social, emotional and material needs of individuals and families from infancy to the elderly. The common goal of all services is to enhance the quality of life and foster independence of those served.
If you were in attendance, we thank you for spending the evening with the lawyers and staff of Quinn Johnston and for supporting Neighborhood House.
