LANSING, Ill. (October 2, 2018) – LARC will be hosting its Annual Fall Fundraiser on Friday, October 19, 4:00–9:00pm, at its facility at 19043 Wentworth Avenue in Lansing, Illinois. LARC is a non-profit organization that provides services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


Development Director Ken Sadowski says, “We are pleased to be partnering once again with Glenwood Oaks Restaurant, but this year we’re doing something a little different. We are offering a new and exciting menu of award-winning BBQ ribs and chicken dinners.” Sadowski explains the options:

  • $16.00 for a combo plate of half slab of ribs and chicken
  • $15.00 for a half slab of ribs
  • $14.00 for a three-piece honey-fried chicken dinner
  • $7.00 for a chicken tenders meal

All dinners include mashed potatoes, baked beans, roll, dessert, and coffee.

Event attenders will enjoy a beer garden, cash raffle, music, and other family-fun activities. For those who cannot stay, LARC offers another new option—carry-out dinners will also be available.

Proceeds from the fall fundraiser will directly benefit programs and services provided to the 100 clients LARC serves in Lansing and the surrounding south suburbs.

For more information or to purchase tickets, call LARC at 708-474-1540.
