KANELAND – The next two events in the Kaneland Arts Initiative (KAI) season fall on the same weekend. Both events promise to be full of entertainment, celebrating the Arts and the love found within them. The Annual KAI Fine Arts Feast Friday, February 24, 6pm
The Feast date was recently changed from earlier in the month, but the location, Open Range Southwest Grill Restaurant, will remain the same. This year's Feast theme is BE THE LIGHT, emphasizing the welcoming nature of the Arts and the love that is shared by attending and participating in artful activities. KAI artistic director, Diane McFarlin, will direct and emcee this cabaret-style evening. At the Feast, there will be a number of silent auction items as well as a cork raffle, and KAI will be drawing the winning raffle ticket for two (2) Blackhawks tickets against the Columbus Blue Jackets on March 31st. The raffle tickets are on sale now and information can be found on KAI's website, www.kanelandartsinitiative.org. Tickets for the Feast are $10 each and includes dinner and entertainment. Tickets for the Feast are also available on KAI's website. KAI Presents "Comedy Knight"
