Ribfest Starts Tomorrow!

Tomorrow starts the annual Naperville Ribfest festival that runs through Sunday July 7th. Ribfest is a great family fun event with food, music, and fun entertainment. This year’s music headliners are STYX, Rick Springfield, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. They will also be displaying a fantastic firework display on the fourth of July at 9:30pm.
Ribfest is hosted by Naperville’s Exchange Club. The Exchange Club is an American Service Club, where groups of men and women work together to make communities a better places to live. All of the proceeds that are made from the event are given to charities and programs throughout the area. All of the charities are aimed at serving needy children and families.  Ribfest has raised more than $13 million for charity based organizations. A portion of the money made this weekend will be given to HSP. The grant donation is determined by the number of volunteers that sign up for the event to represent HSP. The more volunteers we sign-up, the more money we receive. The money made this weekend will serve the needy children and families in our summertime Feed the Kids program!
Every year Ribfest asks volunteers from the participating charities to provide volunteers for the event. There are still some last minute volunteer spots to work the beverage section on the 4th and the 7th from 4pm to 10pm. Volunteers for this section must be 21+. If you would like to represent HSP and volunteer at this year’s Ribfest let us know and we can give you all the information.
