The Sycamore VFW and Tom’s Country Store & Catering will hold a fundraising dinner to benefit Pay-It-Forward House in Sycamore.

They will serve an all-you-can-eat buffet dinner from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday at the VFW, 121 S. California St. Tickets cost $12 each for adults and $6 for children age 10 and younger. Enjoy delicious, homemade barbecue chicken and rib tips, rotisserie pork sandwiches, country-style baked beans, steakhouse potato salad, creamy apple coleslaw, rolls and desserts, which are all included in the ticket price.  

Pay-It-Forward House is a healthcare hospitality house that provides a home-away-from-home for friends and family of patients receiving medical treatment in DeKalb County. It is through the hospitality and generosity of local volunteers and donors that Pay-It-Forward House operates; and, like the VFW, not only serves those in need, but provides a source of volunteer opportunities and camaraderie for like-minded community members.

“We are thrilled that the VFW has once again agreed to partner with us for this event," Pay-It-Forward House Executive Director Jea Nae Remala said in a news release. "Their contributions to the quality of life in Sycamore set the example for organizations like ours who hope to make a difference in the lives of others. Country Store & Catering is a generous supporter and volunteer at our annual Meet Me at the Fair event each July, so we’re excited that Tom has once again stepped forward to help support our mission.”

• Sycamore VFW, 121 S. California St.

• Tom’s Country Store & Catering, 456 N. Main St.

• Sycamore Chamber of Commerce, 407 W. State St.
