Weather Forecast Forces Venue Change  for Children’s Home Annual Cattle Auction


Peoria, IL   The combination of projected rainfall, wind gusts and falling temperatures for the Peoria area has led the Children’s Home Association to move the location of its Cattle Auction fundraiser on Saturday, September 8 from a tent at Weaver Farms to an indoor setting at the Peoria Civic Center, Exhibit Hall D.


“As far as I’m aware, this is the only time in the Cattle Auction’s 54-year history that Mother Nature has forced us to relocate indoors, stated Children’s Home CEO Matt George. This last-minute venue change would not have been possible without the understanding and gracious support of our vendors and community.”


Outside of the venue change, ALL details of the event remain the same. Starting at 5:30 pm guests will enjoy cocktails, games and music; a full barbeque spread by Cracked Pepper; and entertainment by country artist Martin McDaniel. There will also be a silent and live auction, and of course the opportunity for guests to stock their freezers with quality cuts of beef from Alwan & Sons.


The Peoria Civic Center will be extending FREE parking for guests of this event in either of its two lots.


Children’s Home representatives are currently contacting sponsors and guests with details of the change. For more information about the 54th Cattle Auction, please call (309) 685-1047.
