Home of the Sparrow to host 3 fundraisers this year

McHENRY – Home of the Sparrow plans three fundraising events this year.

“Place de la Musique Carnaval,” hosted at the Sanfilippo Estate, will be June 29. The 2013 theme will play off a vintage carnival feel and will be hosted in the carousel building. The ticket price will be $100 per guest and will include a full buffet dinner and three hours of open bar.

The eighth annual Charity Golf Outing, hosted at Bull Valley Golf Club, will be Aug. 26. Participants get to enjoy a round of golf, lunch and dinner, and fun extras, such as awards, betting holes and contests. Several golf packages are available for individuals or foursomes.

The 5K Monster Mash run/walk, hosted at Three Oaks Recreation Area, will be Oct. 5.

For information on tickets or sponsorship availability, or to volunteer on the events committee, call Alana Subleski 815-271-5444, ext. 40, or email asubleski@HOSparrow.org.

All proceeds raised throughout the events will go directly to Home of the Sparrow’s Mission.

Home of the Sparrow provides transitional shelter and affordable housing to homeless women and children.
