The Stubler Family, former owners of the Illinois Valley Super Bowl, contributed a $12,600 lead gift Horizon House’s Annual Road to Independence Campaign.
“This generous gift gets this year’s campaign off to a very strong beginning. It inspires confidence in the volunteers and donors.” said Holly Vanaman, Road to Independence campaign chairperson.
In addition to being supporters, the Stublers have a long history with Horizon House. Bob and Jim’s mother, Mary was a founder and volunteer of the Horizon House Parent Club. Their late brother, Donald received services from Horizon House and their sister, Betty lives in a home operated by the agency. As owners of the Illinois Valley Super Bowl from 1988 to 2020, they provided countless hours of entertainment for many people supported by Horizon House.
“Tuesday afternoon bowling is a Horizon House tradition that has gone on for decades. The Stublers have had a big impact on the men and women with disabilities who receive support from Horizon House. We appreciate all they have done for us.” said Horizon House CEO Dan Fitzgerald.
The Road to Independence Campaign utilizes a team of community leaders as volunteers to request donations for Horizon House.
“We have a great team of volunteers that donate their time and energy to Horizon House,” Fitzgerald said. “The community has been very generous in the past and I am confident we are going to have a successful campaign this year.”
The goal for this year’s campaign is $110,000.
