C-U in the Prairibbean

C-U in the Prairibbean is a Jimmy Buffet themed party held in downtown Champaign every year. The event is hosted by the Eastern Illinois Parrot Head Club (EIPHC), who's whole motto is to "Party with a Purpose!"  There is great live music, tasty food, lots of drinks, and a large silent auction, all to benefit DSC. A cash raffle is also held, with the winner walking away with $2,500! This year will be the 15th annual event. 

This year's event is to be held on Saturday, August 3rd! As we get closer to the event, more information about the event will be posted, including how to volunteer or purchase tickets, etc.

Cash Raffle Tickets will be available for $5 each or 5 for $20. Each ticket has wonderful coupon savings on the back. 

Event Tickets will be available for $10 each. Each ticket also has valuable coupons on the back!

All tickets purchased online will be available for pick up at WILL CALL the night of the event.
