MORRIS – The CornFed ParrotHeads are bringing a beach party to Morris next week to benefit We Care of Grundy County.

The third annual Tropical Invasion on Sept. 13 will start at 4 p.m. and run until midnight. It will offer a host of games for children and adults, in addition to raffles, a silent auction and a 50/50 drawing.

The event will coincide with the Morris Cruise Night, which also will benefit We Care of Grundy County that night. We Care is a nonprofit agency that provides emergency help to Grundy County residents in the form of food, rent, utility and prescription assistance.

“I love this kind of fundraiser,” said Denise Gaska, We Care’s executive director. “It gives a wide variety of people from the community a chance to come out, have fun and raise awareness for We Care.”

There is no cover charge for the event, which will be held at the Red Cent, 823 Liberty St. in Morris. Gaska hopes this brings more people in.

Featured entertainment will be Johnny Russler and The Beach Bum Band, which will perform everyone’s favorite beach music starting at 8 p.m.

Partygoers are invited to dress in their tropical best and come and party with a purpose to benefit We Care of Grundy County. For information, call 815-347-3057 or visit
