Community Nurse Health Association Auxiliary
Launches New Event on Sept. 19

The Auxiliary of the Community Nurse Health Association will present a new event called Rocktober Fest on Saturday, September 19. The casual event will feature beers, brats and bands from 5:00 to 10:30 p.m. in Gordon Park (behind the former YMCA) in La Grange.

Traditional German foods will be served by Tommy R’s as well as a nice selection of beers. Live music by The Legends and Infinity will be featured. Ticket prices range from a basic $10 entry fee to an VIP package for $50 that includes admission, dinner and drink tickets.

Rocktober Fest will take the place of the formal fundraiser Party in Paradise that the Auxiliary hosts each fall.

All funds raised by Rocktober Fest will support the Community Nurse Health Association’s (CNHA) medical and dental clinics for adults and children. Located in LaGrange, the CNHA serves low income residents and those who cannot afford health or dental insurance in 15 western suburbs including Brookfield, Countryside, Hinsdale, Hodgkins, LaGrange, Lyons and Willowbrook. Other services provided by CNHA include the extensive Secret Santa program which serves children from the pediatric clinic.
