Rally For Reilly
Coachman's Golf Resort Edgerton/Stoughton
David Reilly was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in January of 1997. He underwent radiation and chemotherapy. Unfortunately, those life-saving treatments have damaged his heart. He recently received a Left Ventricle Assist Device (LVAD) that has taken over the function of the left side of his heart. He is at home recovering and is currently listed to receive a heart transplant.
Join us for a fun-filled event to raise awareness for organ donation and support David Reilly and his family.

What really makes AutumnFest special, for many people, is the Chili Contest. Some of the best chefs for miles around bring in their special recipes, with their secret ingredients, to make some of the best chili. The smells from the chili, slowly cooking from early morning until a winner is selected, is enough to make people want to stand by the cooking tent and just take a deep breath.
The public is welcomed to take part in voting for the best chili. There is a $3.00 charge for the chili tasting.
At noon the costume parade will begin at the Gazebo.
At 2:45 p.m. the winners of the Chili Contest are announced.
