DuPage Convalescent Center Seeking Fall Festival Participants

The DuPage Convalescent Center will host its annual Fall Festival on Saturday, Sept. 17. With planning for the event well under way, community participants are needed in the following areas to help make the event an even greater success:

• Sponsors/Donors: Event sponsors, monetary donations and in-kind donations of merchandise or gift certificates to be used in the silent auction or as raffle prizes are needed. Any donation is appreciated. 

• Craft Vendors: The Fall Festival will again include a large Vendor Fair. Outdoor booths (9-foot x 16-foot) can be rented for $50 and tables can be rented for $10. Registration materials can be accessed at

• Car Show: Bring your favorite car to show off to the public, staff and the residents. Last year, more than 60 cars were featured throughout the day. The car show will be located in a designated area with volunteers to watch the cars. Residents of the Center will vote on their favorite classic automobiles and a basket of goodies will be raffled off to one of the entrants. Pre-registration is appreciated. 

• Garage Sale Donations: The Fall Festival will again feature a huge garage sale this year. Donated items are being accepted at the Convalescent Center until Sept. 12.

Proceeds from the Fall Festival benefit the DuPage Convalescent Center Recreation Fund, which provides quality of life programs and services to our residents.  For more information, please call (630) 784-4495 or email
