Blooms or Bust: Spring Fundraiser

We are excited to announce our new Spring fundraiser, Blooms or Bust! Mingle with local farmers and foodies, try some local brews made with local grains, and learn what's coming up on the local food scene this year... including exciting news about the 3rd annual Artisan Cup & Fork. 

What: Blooms or Bust fundraiser for The Land Connection
When: Thursday, May 10  |  5-8pm
Where: Riggs Beer Company (1901 S High Cross Rd, Urbana, IL 61802)
Why: To support The Land Connection and our summer programs, including the Champaign Farmers Market
How much: $20; $10 for guests under 21

Your $20 ticket includes entry to the event, appetizers, and one beer. Riggs will be offering tours of the brewery, so you can see how the magic happens. You can also enter our raffle and win fabulous prizes from local farms and businesses. Child admission (all guests under 21) is $10 and includes entry to the event and appetizers. 

Proceeds from the evening will benefit the summer programming of The Land Connection and the Champaign Farmers Market, which kicks off its fourth season on May 15. While our programming is generally funded by grants and sponsorships, it is donations from the community that allows us, as an organization, to continue to operate at a sustainable level and benefit the local, regional, and statewide communities with our various programs. We hope you will join us and support local farmers and the local food system (while enjoying great local beer and appetizers of course).

Purchase your tickets today!

Note: Children's tickets (under 21) don't include a beer. (obviously)
