Put this family event on your schedule for Saturday, July 31, and be sure to be in Johnsburg (Ill.) at the Walla-Pa-Looza "Raisin' Cash for Cancer" event.
This family event starts at 2:00PM at the Johnsburg Community Club, 2315 Church Street, in Johnsburg. $5.00 each gets you in the door; kids 12 and under - free. Last year the event raised $15,000.
There will be a battle of the bands (under 21), and the judge will be Cory Lockwood, host of The Time Machine on Saturdays, 2:00-6:00PM (except July 31), on www.mchenrycountyradio.net/ Cory's guest yesterday was Dina DeMonte, lead singer of Blush and volunteer at Walla-Pa-Looza.
Plan on food, music, family fun, and raffles.
