The Crystal Lake Food Pantry will host an anniversary gala to celebrate 35 years in the community.
The event will be from 2 to 5 p.m. Oct. 6 at the food pantry, 42 East St., Crystal Lake.
“This anniversary gala is a true celebration of our past, present and future,” Crystal Lake Food Pantry President William Eich said in a statement. “It is an opportunity to honor those who helped establish the organization in 1983. It is also a chance to acknowledge those volunteers, donors and community supporters who built and now operate (and continue to grow) our food pantry, which serves thousands in our community each year.”
Members of the public are invited to take tours of the pantry and enjoy music and refreshments.
