Raffle tickets will be available for purchase, offering a chance to win prizes such as homemade quilts, a wine basket and a foursome of golf for the 2016 DuPage Convalescent Center Foundation Golf Outing.

Apple slices, taffy apples and scarecrows will also be available for purchase.

Major sponsors include Northwestern Medicine and Stratford Dental. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available for as low as $100.
