Roses from Linda is a non-profit organization to help purchase airline, bus and train tickets for people who cannot afford to travel to see a terminally ill loved one. Join in Friday, November 23 from 5-10 p.m. at the Effingham VFW to help send loved ones to see those who need them the most. A $20 ticket will include a dinner provided by Joe's Pizza, one drink voucher and a 50/50 ticket. Meet Kitten and Gerald Dowden from CMT's "Bayou Billionaires". There will be a chance to win $1,000 cash, games, music and a full bar.

Contact TJ Hodges at 217-417-2677 or Sara Myers at 217-821-1981 for additional tickets, information and donations. Donation checks can be sent to Roses From Linda, 2009 Ingemuson Lane, Yorkville, IL 60560. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to helping families travel to see their loved ones.
