CRYSTAL LAKE – Moonlight & Music, Pioneer Center for Human Services premier social event of the season, will be held next month.
Hosted at the Crystal Lake Country Club on Friday, June 20, organizers say the night promises to be a fun “Ravinia-like” experience.
The open air concert will feature the return of Caribé Latin Jazz Orchestra. Organizers said the one-of-a-kind group will enchant and excite with the powerful, high energy sounds of Santana as well as the smooth, sophisticated, jazzy sounds of Brazil.
In addition to individual tickets priced at $125 each, attendees can also reserve their very own “piece of the fairway” for a semi-private party for 10 people. As space is limited and filling up fast, guests are encouraged to RSVP for the event by Tuesday, June 10.
Lawn chairs will be provided to allow guests to enjoy the outdoor ambience. Dress is casual and a full cash bar will be offered.
“Join us as we celebrate yet another year of Pioneer Center and the community working together to ‘empower individuals to achieve their full potential,’” said Christin Kruse, Chief Development Officer for Pioneer Center.
The evening will also include the Moonlight Raffle. New this year, those who purchase raffle tickets can win one of three exciting gift packages. Each has a minimum value of $1,500. A donation of $20 per ticket or $100 of six tickets is suggested.
