This Saturday, May 10th from 9AM to 4PM, Downtown Crystal Lake will be hosting its Flower Sale Fundraiser at the corner of Williams & Brink.   The sale of any purple flowers will generate an extra donation to the Lupus Foundation.  A DJ will be setup near Dalzell Jewelers, so there will be plenty of lively music all day long.

There will also be a concurrent Lupus Fundraiser going on.  The month of May is Lupus Awareness Month, and purple is the color for Lupus.  One of our own, Taylor Kassel, a student at Crystal Lake South High School, is affected by this terrible disease.  Taylor and her mother Bonnie both work at Benedict’s La Strata.  

This Saturday, we are “painting downtown purple” and collectively wrapping our arms around the Kassel family to provide emotional support and to raise $$$ for the Lupus Foundation.  Many businesses will be offering discounts on purple items, making donations and helping in so many other ways.  The outpouring of our downtown community is heart-warming.  “Wear purple” this Saturday and show your support!
