Their franchise agreement ran its course, and the owner (who also owns other successful fast food places in town) decided that it wasn't worth re-upping with Steak N Shake.

We give a ton of money to Airports and to promote air travel. We talk about being "green" so what do they want me to do "drive" to Chicago and use up a bunch of gas and pollute the air?

Must be a Corp. thing. I was in there a couple of Sunday's ago and there was line waiting to get in with all the tables full. This was before noon. Doesn't make sense to me.

Event is February 22, 2014 at the Ambiance in Quincy

Advocacy Network for Children will hold its annual fundraising event on February 22, 2014 at The Ambiance, 5225 Kochs Lane, Quincy.  The event begins at 6:00 p.m. with a “Passport/Travel” theme.  This is a fun evening with no program or solicitation.  Throughout the evening there will be games, a silent auction and live auction.   Local businesses and volunteers donate their time and merchandise for this event.  The dollars raised through this event will help with day-to-day operating costs of Advocacy Network for Children which provides advocacy for abused and neglected children in nine of the counties in West Central Illinois.  For a partial list of the items for auction at the dinner go to our website at www.advonet.org.

Tickets are still available at $50 per person or a table of eight for $400.00.  If you are interested in attending, please call the Advocacy Network for Children office at 217-223-2272.

Tickets are also being sold for a chance to win a Honda 4 X 4 from TNT Action Sports.  Tickets are $10.00 each.  Winner is responsible for taxes and title.  50/50 drawing if a minimum of 600 tickets are not sold.  The winner will be drawn during the dinner but need not be present to win.

The fundraising committee is Kristen Ritterbusch, Denise Donley, Karina Derhake, Maureen Crickard, Elizabeth Scholz, Linda Dillman, Liz Hultz, Stephanie Reyburn, Lesley VanNess, Kim Rokusek, Debbie Smith, Carol Cave, Kelley Cole and Danielle Koch. 

The Advocacy Network for Children provides two distinct programs for abused and neglected children in our community.  The CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) program recruits, trains and supervises volunteers to speak in the best interest of abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system. Last year, almost 200 children were represented by CASA volunteers in Adams and McDonough Counties.

 The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) provides a child-friendly, neutral environment where the child victims of sexual abuse or severe physical abuse and their non-offending family meet with law enforcement, Department of Children and Family Services and State’s Attorney for the purpose of investigation.  The Children’s Advocacy Center coordinates the investigation and provides a variety of advocacy and support to the child victim and non-offending family.  Children’s Advocacy Center staff helps bridge the gap between social services, law enforcement, and the court system. The Children’s Advocacy Center program served over 300 children in 2013.
