Dino at CardinalWe were delighted that so many of you pitched in for the 7th Annual Popcorn Days on May 1 and 2 to raise $35,000!

We had 125 volunteers at 75 locations in 23 communities and distributed thousands of bags of popcorn — compliments of The Popcorn Factory. New this year was the engagement of local corporations who tagged during the week of April 27 – in their lobbies, cafeterias and other high-traffic office spots.

Thank you to Trustmark, Sodexho/Siemens Health, Abbvie, Cardinal Health, Zurich NA, UL, Akorn Pharmaceutical, Idex, United Stationers, Allstate, Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Brightstar.

Many of these corporations also matched their employees’ contributions and signed on to applaud all Participants working at these locations. We also invited merchants, restaurants and retailers in Libertyville to create popcorn displays during their “First Friday” event. Thank you to Mickey Finns, Julie’s Studio, Townee Square, Lee’s Famous Donuts and so many more.

We are looking forward to next year’s Popcorn Days already!
