Placeholder Image
ORFORDVILLE - The 14th annual Children's Christmas Benefit will be Saturday, Dec. 1 at the Orfordville American Legion, 3913 S. Wisconsin 213.

The evening will kick off at 6 p.m. with a pork chop supper sponsored by the Rock County Pork Producers. Santa Claus will be on hand for the children. Raffles will be held throughout the evening. Donations will be accepted for the meal. The Stateline Playboys will provide entertainment from 8 p.m. to midnight.

The toys and gifts collected are distributed discreetly and confidentially among local county children so that their Christmas will be a bit merrier. The purpose of the benefit is to give to the kids what they would not otherwise have during the holiday season. Of the contributions raised, 100 percent of them go directly back into the community.

There are no administrative fees taken from the fundraiser. It is an organization that is 100 percent volunteer driven.

The event is sponsored by the Rock County Pork Producers, Rock County Dairy Promotion Council, Rock County Beef Producers, Rock County Farm Bureau, Larson Acres Inc., Rock County 4-H, Seneca Foods, Pacesetter Alpacas, Orfordville American Legion, Alliant Energy and Stables Bar and Grill.

There is no charge for the evening's entertainment or the meal. Donations will be accepted at the event. All cash contributions will be used specifically for purchasing hats, mittens, boots, clothing, toys and supplies for children from birth to high school age. The contributions also supply a Christmas meal to each of the families. Throughout the rest of the year, any remaining money is used to help area families in need.
