Welcome to the Southern Illinois Chicken and Beer Dance website. Our next Chicken and Beer Dance will be on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at The Regency Conference Center in O’Fallon, Illinois in the “Tuscany Grand Ballroom”. Net proceeds from this event benefits Make-A-Wish® Illinois.
Make-A-Wish® Illinois was founded in 1985 by a group of local volunteers. The chapter serves children in all counties of Illinois. The Illinois Chapter has turned dreams into reality for more than 11,000 children and continues its mission to Share the Power of a Wish® with courageous children across the state.
In fiscal year 2013, the Illinois Chapter fulfilled 698 magical wishes, and in fiscal year 2014, its goal is to grant more than 700 wishes.
Every year, nearly 1,200 children in Illinois are newly diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Make-A-Wish® believes that wishes are an important part of the overall care and treatment of these children. Each wish offers the opportunity for a joyous, life-changing experience.
Make-A-Wish® grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Make-A-Wish® is only able to create life-changing wish experiences with help from dedicated staff, volunteers, donors and other supporters.
With your support of the Southern Illinois Chicken and Beer Dance we will be able to make more children’s wishes come true!
