Turning Point to Host Fundraiser in August

The 10th annual Take a Stand for Turning Point Radiothon fundraiser will be held Friday and Saturday, Aug. 14 and 15, at Sam’s Club in Crystal Lake, 5670 Northwest Highway.

The 36-hour event will feature a live radio broadcast with DJs from Star 105.5 along with a variety of summer activities.  The event activities run from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Photographs with the Batmobile will be available both days, thanks to a rental donation by the Volo Auto Museum. Turning Point also expects to book a popular local pop band for Friday evening.

“It should be great way to spend some time on a Friday night listening to music and relaxing,” said Greg Hoaglin, events and public relations coordinator for Turning Point. “Saturday will be fun for all, and we’re hoping for 50 plus classic cars during our annual car show.”

Attendees can participate by voting for their favorite car, along with the Star 105.5 staff. All proceeds from the event will help fund Turning Point’s mission to confront violence against women and children in McHenry County.
