Saturday will also have our annual auction. This is one of the most important fundraising events of the year and we are asking for donations. Liberty themed items are ideal, but anything of interest is welcome. In the past we have had items ranging from books to a Kindle, even baked goods and gift baskets. Please donate new or barely used items with values under $100 so more people can bid. Gifts to the Libertarian Party of Illinois are not tax deductible.

Contact to donate or volunteer. If you would like a vendor table, rates are a low $25 each. Reduced rate attendance rates and packages will be available from now through February 28th. The Annual Business meeting is free to every member. Remember to book your rooms as soon as possible. Let’s make this year’s attendance the best ever!



Only one package, plus optional donations, will be added to the cart each time.
