Annual fundraiser to benefit St. Jude cancer center

DIXON – The third annual Donnie Melendrez “Game Night” Memorial Fundraiser, a benefit for Peoria St. Jude Children’s Cancer Center, will be held March 30 at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 506 W. Third St.

There will be a euchre tournament at 1 p.m., and a Texas Hold ’em poker tournament, with a $50 buy-in, at 4:30 p.m. Players can sign up an hour before each.

There also will be a 50/50 raffle, a prize wheel, a game board trivia game, food and drink. Several big-screen TVs will be tuned in to the NCAA semifinals.

Dixon Sewer Department worker Donald E. “Donnie” Melendrez was 65 when he died of cancer on Aug. 15, 2009. He loved euchre, said his niece, Lori Sheridan, one of the organizers.

To buy a raffle ticket or for more information, call Sheridan at 815-622-6799.
