Local Nonprofit and Community Organizations
Mission and Vision
Started in 1986, the Centurions of Kendall County is a 501c3 tax-exempt non-profit association, consisting of 49 business and community leaders, created and existing for benevolent, charitable and educational purposes.
Since its inception in 1985, it has contributed over $800,000 dollars to local charities and college scholarships. Funds are raised through sponsorship's, auctions, and ticket sales at the Centurions Annual Valentine’s Gala held every February.
Each year, the CENTURIONS of Kendall County host an annual Gala attended by hundreds of people. Every year the gala takes on a different theme and is unquestionably one of Kendall County's most popular charitable events. Staging a party of this size takes a tremendous amount of volunteer time. Each year hundreds of hours go into the construction, food preparation, collection of donations, sponsorships and ticket sales for this gala.
Planning for the February gala begins right after each year's previous gala. One of the most time-consuming aspects of planning the gala is the solicitation of donations for the silent and live auctions, collecting monetary donations and sponsorships . Obviously, the more items that are donated the more successful the fund raising effort becomes, as the money from ticket sales and activities at the gala may then go directly to the local charities and scholarships.
