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.
