On Par for DuPage is set to start at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013 at Arrowhead Golf Club, 26W151 Butterfield Road. The 18-hole outing is scheduled for the height of autumn foliage and will include a continental breakfast, an Oktoberfest-themed dinner and craft beer, and an authentic German Oompah band to entertain during the dinner.
“... We’ll ultimately see neighbors helping neighbors in the community,” said Elizabeth F. Higgins, senior director of programs at People’s Resource Center. “That’s what this partnership is about.”
People’s Resource Center has been bringing neighbors together since 1975 to respond to hunger and poverty in DuPage County.
Award Nominees Sought
The most tangible way this event will honor those neighbors is through the Hope and History Hero Award. They are seeking to recognize an individual who, through business and community work, has helped to create opportunities in DuPage. More information and nomination forms can be found at peoplesrc.org.
“This award honors the businesses that have a rich history in DuPage County and are also moving forward for the betterment of those in our community,” DuPage County Historical Museum Curator Sara Arnas said.
Higgins agreed. “We’re celebrating the connection of people who founded the community and those who continue to build the community through service.”
