Spring Fashion Show
We are excited to announce that GiGi’s Playhouse McHenry County will host its third annual Be-You-tiful Spring Fashion Show on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at the Boulder Ridge Country Club in Lake in the Hills. This event will feature a luncheon, raffle, and most importantly, an amazing fashion show highlighting the wonderful children and adults that are part of GiGi’s Playhouse McHenry County. The fashion show provides an opportunity to celebrate the participants and their achievements!
Another fun and successful fundraising idea has been the annual “Penny Pancake Day” held at each Colonial location. The tradition began in 2008, and has helped generate thousands of dollars for local non-profits, according to Colonial President Clinton T. Anderson. On Thursday, April 6, 2017 from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm at the Crystal Lake location will host “Penny Pancake Day” to benefit GiGi's Playhouse McHenry County. Guests will enjoy pancakes for a penny each, with the purchase of a beverage. While not required, guests are asked to donate their savings to the organization being highlighted that day. We will have volunteers on site to educate the community about our organization, and to receive donations. This is GiGi's Playhouse McHenry County 1st year participating in the event. Volunteers will be present on how to get involved!
