Hey sports fans and animal lovers, tomorrow, Saturday, July 14th, from 1pm to 4pm, at the Tilted Kilt in Joliet, Illinois, COPE Animal Rescue will be having a charity event to help raise money for medical expenses and special needs of our rescued animals. COPE is a not-for-profit organization operating in Will and Grundy counties in Illinois. We rescue cats and dogs from abuse, abandonment and neglect. We provide medical care for them. We then rehabilitate and foster them until they are ready to be adopted by loving families.
The event will consist of a silent auction of autographed sports memorabilia from the Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs and White Sox. There will also be several raffles and Samantha Saltarski will be selling Scentsy Candles. JCTV Channel 6 will be there as well. Here is a partial list of player autographs we have for auction: Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Starlin Castro, Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Derrick Rose, Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn, Jay Cutler and Mike Ditka.
Our raffles prizes include a round of golf in Crest Hill, bowling package, dinner certificates, STARS racing package, a Bulls banner with Taj Gibson’s autographed, White Sox, Joliet Slammers and Chicago Bandits’ tickets and more. Admission is free but the help you will provide tomorrow is priceless. Come on out and enjoy great food and help COPE Animal Rescue. The Tilted Kilt is located at the Louis Joliet Mall between Macy’s and JC Penney’s. The mall is on U.S. Rt. 30 (Plainfield Rd.) and I-55. See you all there!!
