Its almost here! Sheri Casey, recipient of the Doctor of Civic Betterment Award and past president of the Belvidere Chamber of Commerce, is the focus of Boone County CASA’s 2015 event. She’s generously allowed Boone County CASA to set up a few people who know her well to “roast” her. Don’t know what a Roast is? Its’ “an event in which one particular guest is joked about and made fun of by his or her peers, usually in front of an audience. The roasters are typically assembled on a “dais” (a raised platform or stage), where they remain for the length of the roast. The host of a roast is called the “roastmaster,” who does jokes at the opening and then introduces each guest. The roasters then take turns doing jokes about the guest of honor.”
There‘s going to be a lot of other fun things going on that night as well. There will be prizes, dinner, and a cash bar. Surprises are inevitable! CASA formerly roasted State’s Attorney Michelle Courier, then Mayor Fred Brereton, and Jack Wolf. Each of those roasts were exciting, and laughs were had poking fun at some of our community’s stand out figures. Thank you to Sheri Casey for signing on and thank you to you for coming out to join us. Tickets can be purchased at Belvidere area Alpine Banks, the CASA office, and the Community Building on 111 West First Street.
We’ll see you there!
