Dinner supports kids, mentors

CLINTON — One of the Midwest’s best lounge acts, the Midwest Dueling Pianos, returns to entertain the guests on Nov. 23 during the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Clinton’s annual fundraising dinner.

The Dueling Pianos fundraiser, in its third year, helps raise funds to start something to change the life of an area child forever. The event includes a buffet dinner featuring carved sirloin, pork loin and more; a three-hour interactive and comedic dueling pianos show; plus a silent auction and dessert dash. Some of the silent auction items include a getaway to Chicago, Walt Disney World tickets and even signed music paraphernalia from Charity Fundraising. All the proceeds help Big Brothers Big Sisters provide children facing adversity in Clinton County and Fulton, Ill., with staff-supported, long-term, one-to-one mentoring friendships.

“After the success of last year’s event and all the great compliments I heard, it was easy inviting the Midwest Dueling Pianos team back for this year’s dinner,” said Kellie Hillis, executive director for Big Brothers Big Sisters. “If you missed them last year, then you won’t want to miss out this year. We’ve made improvements and additions, so it’s sure to be a fun evening.”

Tickets are $50 a person and are available for purchase at, by emailing or by calling Big Brothers Big Sisters at 243-4223.
