An elegant sweet and savory hors d’oeuvres buffet and coffee bar will be included. There will be numerous raffle and silent auction prizes, donated by local businesses.

A limited number of tickets are available for this adult-only event for $20, which includes musical entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and coffee bar. A cash bar also will be available.

Tickets are on sale at all upcoming Sycamore concerts, at the Sycamore High School main office, via email at or by phone at 815-757-5688. For more information, visit
