Little City Book Run

Join us for the 2nd Annual Little City Book Run benefiting employment for individuals with disabilities. The event will run from May to October 5, 2019. Books will be available starting in June for $15.

The Book Run Celebration will be held on Sunday, October 5, 2019 at Pointers Saloon in Marengo, IL beginning at 2:00. The celebration includes food, beer (while it lasts,) raffles, prizes, live music and entertainment.

You will be automatically entered into a drawing to win up to $100 just by turning in your book! Raffle prizes include a Chicago Blackhawks hockey stick signed by the team, an autographed Jonathan Toews jersey, and the chance the win an incredible trip to Mexico!

How It Works

On each page of the book is a different location of a restaurant or bar. Take the book to as many locations as possible by October 5th. At each location, present your book and draw a chip. You will pull one poker chip out of the bag, and the employee will write down the color of the chip, the date, and their initials on the corresponding page in the book.

At the Book Run Celebration on October 5th at Pointers Saloon in Marengo, you’ll turn in your book. The point value of each chip will be added and the person with the highest points wins the grand prize of $500.
