On Saturday March 10, 2012 at 7:00 pm a Spring Fling Benefit Dance, presented by the Belvidere Lions will begin. The proceeds will go towards the Hriczak Field Playground which has been messed up by the floods. Because the children of Belvidere use that park frequently during soccer, softball and baseball season the Belvidere Lions Club wish to make it a fun safe environment for all.

Rock Solid Entertainment

Of course, with the Lions collecting funds is never just a pass the hat around kind of thing. This is an organization which believes in maximizing the fun factor and this time they really turned it up a notch. Your $25.oo donation will grant entrance into the Belvidere Manor (a.k.a Firehouse on Water Street) where you will be gyrating to the  music of the Rock Solid Band. From Billy Joel & Lynyrd Skynyrd to Pat Benatar & the Stray Cats this is a band sure to keep you on your feet. For those down times however, Beer, Soda and Snacks will also be provided.

Advance Tickets are available at Thisilldous Eatery, Skoogy’s, Food Mart and also from any Belvidere Lions member (which includes yours truly). For those keeping score Jeff Melchor seems to have the knack for selling tickets. In October of 2011, he almost single handily sold all 300 tickets for the “Good Night Irene” dance. Just a tip, you may want to search him out and see what all the fuss is about. My guess is that he is giving away something.
