Mayor’s Roast of Rex Linder

Located in the peoria civic center ballroom

Please join in the fun for this event benefiting Mark Linder Walk for the Mind and OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois.

Wednesday, September 26, attorney Rex Linder will sit in on his own “trial” at the 3rd Annual Mayor’s Roast at the Peoria Civic Center. Although the laughs may come at Rex’s expense, money raised during the event will benefit two organizations close to his heart:

Mark Linder Walk for the Mind – Rex’s son, Mark, first organized the “Walk for the Mind” while he himself was battling brain cancer. Although Mark lost his fight in 2005, his spirit lives on in this annual event that raises money for brain tumor awareness and research.

OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois – As a former president of the Children’s Hospital Community Advisory Board, Rex is passionate about giving back. Donations will go directly to the Heller Center for Kids with Cancer

The panel of roasters (swearing “to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”) may take pleasure in poking fun at the exploits of Rex… but he’ll have the chance to appeal with a rebuttal of his own!

Laughter will be plenty and it will raise a whole lot of money for these worthy organizations. Click link below for sponsorship information.

This event is NOT hosted by Mark Linder Walk for the Mind, however net proceeds will be donated to Mark Linder Walk for the Mind AND OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois.
