Open Roads ABATE of IL Chapter sponsored a summer book run this past summer, consisting of 55 businesses of bike dealers, bars/grills and places of interest, with most businesses located from Route 47 to the Mississippi River and I-80 to the Wisconsin state line.
The object of the book run was for participants to travel and patronize all the businesses, get the books stamped and to attend a post party Oct. 5, when the winners of the book run were drawn.
A total of 193 people bought books. Those who were eligible for raffles and cash prizes attended the book party. The third-place cash prize winner was Kevin Smith, second-place winner was Rob Halvax and the first-place winner was Scott Savage. A total of $800 was given to first, second and third places. The rest of the proceeds will be donated to ABATE of IL Inc. for Safety and Education programs and Open Roads for local programs.
There will be a 2020 summer book. For information, call Linda at 630-552-3828.
