Fundraiser to benefit Characters of Character

CRYSTAL LAKE – A fundraiser July 19 at Nick’s Pizza and Pub will benefit the nonprofit Characters of Character.

The event will be from 3 to 10 p.m. at Nick’s, 856 Pyott Road, Crystal Lake. The restaurant will donate all the net profits from the day to the nonprofit.

Attendees will be able to meet former Chicago Bears player Desmond Clark, founder of 88WAYZ. They also can participate in a bags tournament from 5 to 8 p.m. outdoors for a chance to win an autographed bags game by Clark or a tour of Soldier Field. The cost is $10 per person, with all proceeds going to Characters of Character.

Activities for children include bingo, a coloring contest and face-painting. Participants can have their picture taken with Nick’s Moose, Manners Monkey and Friendship Frog.

Founded in 2005, Characters of Character provides a foundation in the teaching values such as respect, friendship, responsibility and honesty.
