Lincoln Day Dinner Draws a Crowd!

The 2022 Lincoln Day Dinner took place on May 21 at Carmon's in downtown Champaign. With over 230 in attendance and a great showing from local and statewide candidates, the evening was fun and informative. Our panel on Crime in our Community included Amber Oberheim, Von Young, John Hecker and Sam Limentato. Our emcee for the evening was "Big Mike" Namoff. A delicious dinner by Hickory River was enjoyed by all and delicious Bundtini's capped off the evening.
