Dance to benefit 
child burn camp

UNION – A camp for kids with burn injuries will be one of the beneficiaries of the annual Union Fire Protection District’s dance.

Scheduled for the Saturday after Valentine’s Day, the night will include music by the band, Triadd, a photo booth and a 50/50 raffle and other drawings.

The dance will run from 8 p.m. to midnight Feb. 16 at Donley’s Banquet Hall, 8512 S. Union Road. It will cost $5 a person to enter.

Besides Camp “I Am Me” – an Illinois Fire Safety Alliance program designed to give child burn survivors a chance to share their experiences and not feel self conscious – proceeds will go toward scholarships and other programs provided by the Union Firefighters Association.
