East Dubuque Thanksgiving meal raises money


EAST DUBUQUE, IL (KWWL) - Before Black Friday came Thanksgiving Thursday. For nineteen years Linda "Lulu" Thompson has hosted the Annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner at Lulu's Seldom Scene in East Dubuque.

The feast, desserts included, is open to anyone who wants a hot meal on this holiday. Lulu herself says it's about more than the food.

"To give you a day to spend with friends and have a nutritious meal and in the process raise funds for the children," said Thompson.

Thursday's free meal is a preview for Saturday's live auction. The money raised there will support the Jo Daviess Special Olympics.
