DeKALB – Planning is under way for the second annual GRILLED fundraiser May 17 at Feed’em Soup Community Project, 122 S. First St., DeKalb.

The fundraiser will feature four grilled skewers by Chef Alex Smith: habanero barbecue pork, raspberry citrus chicken, chimichurri beef and garden vegetable, according to a news release.

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., with dinner service from 4:30 to 8 p.m.

A silent auction will raise money for Lexi’s Kids Corner, a free program that runs on meal days from 5 to 7 p.m.

Each week’s program has a different theme and includes a story and art project, science experiment or other educational activity.

It was named after Lexi Weber, a founding volunteer who died in a car crash in February 2011.

The silent auction includes items from Walt Disney World, Arlington International Race Course, Marriott Theatre-Lincolnshire, the Rockford IceHogs, the Chicago Wolves, the Laugh Factory, Milwaukee Food Tours, Capital Brewery of Middleton, Wis., Buena Vista Golf Course and Sycamore Park District. The silent auction will be from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 17.

GRILLED tickets are $10; children ages 5 and younger are admitted free. For information, call 815-310-0903.
