The Central Illinois Food Bank 18th annual Harvest Ball is on the way, and they are ready to celebrate. Krista Lisser said the Harvest Ball is the food bank's biggest and only fundraiser of the year. She said when the event began the food bank raised about $17,000 dollars, last year it almost raised $100,000, and she hopes they can break the 6 figure mark for the first time this year.

She said this year's Harvest Ball will be different from years past and will have many things such as food carts, entertainment and a food mobile demonstration.

Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased at their website centralil.org or call Heather Ostwick at 522-4022.


Lisser appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
