Show generates funds for northern Illinois charities

| February 2008

Tractors for Charity hosted its 3rd Annual Antique Tractor, Truck and Construction Equipment Show this past October. Businesses, residents and collectors from northern Illinois raised more than $16,000 for charity. The F.I.S.H. of McHenry Food Pantry will get $13,000. Big Brothers and Big Sisters will get $1,000. The City of McHenry will get $2,000 to help restore and maintain historic barns on the Petersen farmstead. Saving our rural heritage and its architecture is important for our history. We hope you can join us next Oct. 4-5, 2008. Visit our website at www.tractors forcharity.com for more information.
