16th Annual Tool Bash
Saturday, April 21, 2018
11 a.m. to 3 p.m,
Indian Oaks Academy Gym (225 Diversatech Drive in Manteno, IL)
This is your chance to help change lives through vocational training!
Indian Oaks Academy (IOA) provides residential treatment for boys and girls, ages 12 to 21, who often have histories of trauma, personal struggle, and lack of positive role models. Our vocational program gives these kids a chance to develop new skills for the future through classes and community service opportunities. Tool Bash raises money to provide valuable vocational offerings both on and off campus, and helps our kids give back to the community.
In 2017, our youth logged over 4,500 volunteer hours with communities and agencies throughout the greater Kankakee County area including: Habitat for Humanity of Kankakee County, Salvation Army of Kankakee County, Manteno Octoberfest Committee, Country Theatre Workshop in Cissna Park, Center of Hope Food Pantry, Kankakee River Valley Forest Preserve District, Manteno Food Pantry, New Beginning for Cats Shelter Services, Camp Shaw-Waw-Nas-See 4-H Camp, Martinton Food Bank, Manteno Historical Society.
Tool Bash tickets are $30 (only 400 tickets available) and include: lunch for two (kids eat free), a Tool Bash T-shirt; and a chance to win great tools from DEWALT, Craftsman, Bosch, Milwaukee, Porter-Cable, Ryobi, Skill Power Tools, and more. Raffle drawings begin at noon. The event also includes a Kid Zone, entertainment, food, and good fun! Ticket holders need not be present to win.
