HARRISBURG — The Fowler Bonan Foundation is partnering together with the Harrisburg Elks Lodge No. 1058 to host the 39th annual Monopoly Tournament.
“This fundraiser is a long-standing tradition in the region, raising money each year to benefit local charities and the Illinois Elks Children’s Care Corporation,” said Dale Fowler, chairman of the Fowler Bonan Foundation. “It is a blessing that the Elks Lodge has chosen the Fowler Bonan Heaven’s Kitchen initiative as one of the benefactors to this year’s tournament.”
The 39th annual Roger Craig Memorial Monopoly Tournament will be held Saturday, March 19, at 4:30 p.m. at the lodge, 220 Vince Ashley Dr., Harrisburg.
Those interested in donating have the option of sponsoring a player, donating to the silent auction or competing as a player. Proceeds from the event will benefit Heaven’s Kitchen of Harrisburg and the Illinois Elks Children’s Care Corporation.
“Our Heaven’s Kitchen initiative wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of those throughout the communities we serve,” said Fowler. “We are so grateful for this opportunity to raise funds for our Harrisburg location and advance the mission of the Children’s Care Corporation.”
Since 2018, the Heaven’s Kitchen initiative has operated to serve warm meals to families in need throughout southern Illinois. This all-volunteer effort currently serves hot meals twice a week in Harrisburg and Marion.
“The Harrisburg Elks look forward to collaborating with the Fowler Bonan Foundation and the community on this year’s Monopoly Tournament. We are extremely proud of the event and its ability to positively impact Harrisburg and the area,” said Jim Etienne, Lead Knight of Harrisburg Elks 1058. “The Elks Children’s Care Corporation has been in operation for over 85 years and strives to provide resources for medical assistance to children in need throughout the state.”
