Buy a ticket for the "Save the Peoria Stadium Luau" on July 24th

You won't want to miss this fun event hosted by Mike and Ryan Murphy!  Tickets are limited so reserve yours today.


Join us for an evening of food, wine and music.  All inspired with a luau theme, you will be indulging in food created especially for the evening by The Fox Pub.  Included with your ticket will be a voucher for a complimentary glass of wine - bottled on site at Tres Rojas.  Keeping the good vibes flowing all night, DJ Ryan Hogan will be providing the tracks and we will have a live special performance by Cami Proctor and Emily Antonacci.


This is an event to raise money for the updating of the Peoria Stadium.  Simply walk the track and you will begin to see just a fraction of the improvements that are needed to make this facility safe and functional.  100% of the money raised will be donated to this effort.  Come dressed in your best tropical attire! 


Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased with a credit card or PayPal account by CLICKING HERE or on the invitation picture.  All tickets must be purchased by July 14th.
