The corn is just about right this year for Randy’s Vegetable Stand and the Sleepy Hollow third annual Corn Roast fundraiser for Illinois Special Olympics athletes. Mother Nature has been providing enough rain for the ears to be ripe and ready to be roasted for the hundreds of revelers to enjoy while they browse through the classic car show, booths of arts and
police squad cars and fire trucks.
The rain can continue, but not on Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., said Christine Gaitsch
“Yes, we’re hoping that Mother Nature cooperates on that day,” she said.
If she gets her weather wish, she and officers of the Sleepy Hollow Police Department, organize the event, will meet their goal of raising more than $6,300. That’s the same amount the corn roast fundraiser raised last year.
Proceeds from the foods sales, some of the profits from the craft vendors, and money collected from the sales of raffle tickets will be donated to the state’s Special Olympics Torch Run Fund.
Law enforcement agencies throughout Illinois collect money for the fund as they run from one end of the state to the other.
Each summer, more than 3,000 police officers run nearly 1,500 miles. Some of them carry the Flame of Hope, representing thousands of special needs athletes who competed in June during Special Olympics games. The run was also held in June.
Money raised during the corn roast at the Randall Road farm will help pay for training and transportation costs
“This year, we have a lot of nice prizes for our raffle,” Gaitsch said. “We have tickets for Cubs and Whites Sox games, an overnight stay at Great Wolf Lodge in the Wisconsin Dells, and passes to Santa’s Village.”
Tickets for the progressive raffle cost $10 each.
“Every year we have such a good time putting this on,” she said. “There’s a lot of work that goes into it. Sleepy Hollow Police Department is so important in helping coordinate the roast, but it’s all for a good cause. We call it a labor of love.”
