Halloween Candy Buy Back
Tuesday, Nov. 4
1715 Broadmoor Drive, Suite A, Champaign

Let Dr. Wesley Chladney, a local orthodontist, buy back your Halloween candy! Here's how it works - for each pound of candy brought to his offices, Dr. Chladney will give you $1, a matching donation will come to Crisis Nursery and your candy will be sent to active U.S. troops serving our country. You don't have to be a patient to participate but there is a limit of 10 lbs. of candy per person. Head to Dr. Chladney's Champaign office on Tuesday, November 4 from 4-5:30pm. A pretty sweet deal - money for your candy, a donation to Crisis Nursery AND supporting the troops!

For all home football games, Crisis Nursery partners with the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity to staff a concession stand and a portion of all sales benefit the Nursery. Our stand is located on the west side of the stadium, inside Gate 24 on the main concourse - just look for the friendly faces and Crisis Nursery signs.

Third Party Fundraiser Guidelines

A third-party fundraising event is any activity by a non-affiliated group or individual where Crisis Nursery has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement. A third party fundraiser is an outside group or individual that wishes to hold a promotion, event, or sale to benefit Crisis Nursery. 
Third party fundraisers are a great way to collect money and goods to donate to the Nursery. We are grateful for dollars raised through events – they helped us raise more than $58,000 in fiscal year 2010! Crisis Nursery encourages third party fundraisers (i.e. golf outings, marathons, sales and donations benefitting the Nursery, etc).

If you have an idea or plan for an event that will benefit Crisis Nursery, contact Special Events Coordinator Heather Wienke to discuss your idea. We ask that all events are approved by Crisis Nursery in advance. This is an important safeguard to preserving the integrity of the Crisis Nursery name and our commitment to raise the necessary funds to fulfill our mission in a cost-effective and efficient manner.  Together, we will discuss your plan and provide guidance for success. Please review our Third Party Fundraiser Guidelines and Agreement. This document will need to be signed in order to move forward with your event 

Because of the volume of these requests, we cannot personally participate in each event that is proposed but will provide materials for your event about Crisis Nursery and the services we provide. As a reminder - please do not move forward with your plans until you have discussed your idea for a third party fundraiser with Special Events Coordinator. Thank you for your support of Crisis Nursery.

If you are interested in organizing an event that supports Crisis Nursery, please contact Heather Wienke at 217-337-2731 or Thank you for your interest and support!
