The Battle of the Bars For a Cause fundraiser will run from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, April 6, at two Streator bars: Carbo’s Sports Bar, 402 E. Main St., and Cali’s Bar, 502 E. Main St.
Sponsored by Hardscrabble Lions Club, the event will benefit Streator Unlimited, diabetes awareness, the Hardscrabble dog park and community projects. Carbo's and Cali's will have guest bartenders working for tips which is how the club raises their money. Last year, more than $11,000 was raised.
Some of the businesses involved in bartending will be Streator Unlimited employers and Board members, Streator Home Savings Bank, SOCU, Star Ford, Bill Walsh Automotive, Vissering Construction, Feken Trucking and other volunteers.
The club also will have a 50-50 drawing throughout the night, with the winner announced at 9:45 p.m. The winning bar will be presented with a trophy. Both locations will have DJ entertainment to add to the fun. The Carbo’s kitchen will not be open during the event.
