Evening Escape Event Will Send Individual To Girls State, Scholarship Fundraiser

WAKEFIELD – With the weather cooling down, bundle up and head outdoors for an ‘evening escape’ event scheduled for Thursday, October 11.

All are welcome to attend Wakefield’s Evening Escape to socialize, have fun and shop since it’s never too early to think Christmas.

Door prizes will be awarded as well as entertainment provided Thursday evening from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Wakefield American Legion. Admission, which includes a light meal is $10 per person.

Proceeds from the evening will allow a high school junior to attend Girl’s State. The attendee who attend will participate, through patriotic values and nonpartisan curriculum, in a government leadership role and money raised will also assist with a scholarship for a high school senior.

The Evening Escape event is funded in part by a grant from the Dixon County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
