All Hands in for Ribfest!

            Usually when eating ribs, there’s a rule to only use your thumb and pointer finger to hold the meat so you don’t get the rest of yourself dirty. However, it’s all hands in for the Naperville Exchange Club’s Ribfest! HSP is looking for volunteers to represent us at the festival, which is July 3rd – 6th. Every summer, Ribfest is a family fun event, and the proceeds go to various organizations in DuPage County and to the elimination of child abuse and domestic violence. There is a lot to do at the festival, including music, fireworks, and food. The Chicago White Sox are stopping by, and among the music headliners is Blue Oyster Cult. And, of course, there will be ribs.
            Ribfest coordinators are looking for volunteers to help out in the festival. Volunteers are needed to serve beverages, to support the merchandising tent, and to distribute information at the entrance gates, among other things. There are two 6-hour volunteer time slots: 11 am – 5 pm and 4 pm – 10 pm. With more volunteers to represent HSP, our Feed the Kids program receives more money to support it.
            You can find out more about the exciting event at www.ribfest.net. If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering at Ribfest, please contact HSP directly at (630)-221-8340. Ribfest is a good way for HSP and its volunteers to get involved in the community, and we would love to see you there!
