10 days away from Wine & Cigars Under the Stars and we need more people!!
Each year our Veterans and Military Affairs Committee puts on this fun charity event to raise money to provide two $2,000 scholarships to graduating senior JROTC cadets, one from Peoria High School and one from Cactus High School.
The event has wine tasting, light and heavy hors d’oeuvres with cigar sampling out on the patio away from the other guests. Cigar smokers may sample a fine bourbon or scotch as well. All the event details are in the ad on the right. This is a very fun special evening that really supports a great cause. One of guest speakers that evening will be a former scholarship recipient, 2nd
Lt. James Herbert.
You may support these incredible cadets by either attending this event or purchasing a sponsorship directly on our Peoria Chamber website. Or, if you just want to make a small donation to the cadets, you can call the Chamber office at 623-979-3601 and our staff will be happy to assist you.
We can still use some raffle prizes and silent auction gifts if you would like to have your business listed as a supporter in the program and on our website. Just bring them to the Chamber office.
If you’re looking for something fun to do with your family, in addition to the Annual Halloween Festival held by the City of Peoria (see info to the right), you may also want to look into the The Haunted Harbor at Lake UN-Pleasant!
They're having their 3rd
annual haunted house at Lake Pleasant - Pleasant Harbor, on October 28th & 29th. There will be food trucks along with many activities for the kids and adults alike such as hot air balloon rides, zombie corn hole tournaments, bonfire, face painting, DJ, barrel training rides, lakeside movie, Ghostbusters night with the car. Peoria Fire Department will be there each night for the kids to explore and learn about the fire trucks. There will be free kid activities and a party on the 29th, followed by trick or treating at the food trucks and in the RV resort. The costume contest during the kid's party will be judged by our local fireman. It’s open 5 pm - 10 pm each night, with the Haunted house hours 6:30 pm - 10 pm.
Enjoy a fun Halloween but be safe and watch your kids out trick or treating.
