Join us for our 19th Annual Family Breakfast, which recognizes the achievements of this year's scholarship recipients and raises funds for future scholarships.
Acorn Equality Fund Family Breakfast Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center East Peoria, Illinois Saturday, December 2 9:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Doors will open at 8:30 a.m., with breakfast beginning at 9:00 a.m. Bring your partner, spouse, guest, family, and friends. It truly is a family—and family-friendly—event! Tickets are $35 each (or $280 for a table of 8). We will have a list of attendees at the door, so you will not be receiving any tickets in the mail. If you purchase a table of 8, we’ll recognize you as a Table Captain in the breakfast program—and we’ll post a sign at your table to recognize you or your group or organization.

For nearly 20 years, the Acorn Equality Fund has been dedicated to advancing the education, health, and civil rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons and their allies throughout downstate Illinois. Our annual Family Breakfast celebrates the achievements of our LGBT and allied students through the awarding of scholarships. It is also our primary fundraising event to support future scholarships.
These are challenging times for LGBT persons—and for so many marginalized groups. The Family Breakfast is a chance for us to come together as a community, to support and empower one another, to promote education and awareness, and to celebrate the accomplishments and aspirations of the youngest members of our community. Your support of this event is important, and we sincerely hope you will attend. Together with caring persons like you, we can make a significant difference in the lives of LGBT students and their allies in downstate Illinois.
