Mayor's Roast of Mike McCoy

In 2016 an old tradition returned to the area — a "roast" of a local notable to benefit a charity of their choosing. Ray LaHood, John Bearce and Rex Linder have been great sports through all the ribbing, and we supported some amazing local charities along the way – raising over $400,000!

This year, the one and only, Chief Mike McCoy has graciously agreed to be "roasted." He has chosen to support three local charities. Dream Center Peoria, Sophia's Kitchen and Camp Hope for the kids of St. Jude.

There really isn’t anything Mike wouldn’t do to help raise funds for these wonderful organizations…including being the butt of a couple of jokes. On Wednesday, October 9, 2019, Mike will be asked to remain silent at the 4th Annual Mayor’s Roast while the roasters take pleasure in poking fun at his exploits. He will be thrilled to know that friends and colleagues such as yourself will be chuckling in their seats and making a difference to causes so close to his heart. And in the interest of fairness, Mike does get the last laugh.
