The Champagne Luncheon


On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Cornerstone hosts over 300 people for the annual Champagne Luncheon. Join us at the beautiful and historic Patrick Haley Mansion in Joliet for knee-slapping entertainment, superb food, and you got it, flowing champagne! The luncheon is a great way to bring people together and gear up for the holiday weekend while raising funds to directly support Cornerstone’s mission to provide progressive, comprehensive services to people with disabilities, promoting choice, dignity, and the opportunity to live and work in the community.

That’s not all. As a guest, you will be served endless champagne by your very own star waiter, a business or civic leader from your own community! Our waiter lists have included Will County Executive Larry Walsh, Mayor of Joliet Bob O’Dekirk, and so many more! Make sure you “tip” your waiter to provide the room with some entertainment, and support Cornerstone at the same time.

The Champagne Luncheon is one of Cornerstone’s most successful fundraising events, drawing the largest crowds, biggest sponsors and auction items. Be sure to save the date for this years luncheon on November 23, 2016 from 12pm-2pm.

To ensure that you have a spot at the table, volunteer as a Star Waiter, or for information about sponsorships, contact Teena Mackey, manager of fundraising and events at 815-741-6743.
