Rosie’s Birthday Club will hold its third annual “Have Your Cake and Eat it Too” fund-raiser from 5 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 27, at Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, 200 S. Bell School Road, Rockford.
Tickets are $40 each or $300 for a corporate table, and include meal, beverage and dessert.
Live cake-decorating and a cake auction will be featured to benefit Rosie’s. See what a dozen local celebrities, teamed up with professional bakers, can dream up.
Help Rosie’s by bidding at the auction to take one of the cakes home with you. An opportunity to take part in a raffle to win other prizes will also be available.
Rosie’s Birthday Club’s mission is to celebrate a child’s special day. Its goal is to provide and deliver a present to children in the Rockford area who may not otherwise receive a gift on their birthday.
Rosie’s Birthday Club provides birthday presents and birthday parties for children at Northwest Community Center Boys & Girls Club, Carlson Boys & Girls Club, Second Congregational Church and RockHouse Kids.
