Residents voice concern and support over Toby Keith’s upcoming performance, results from the Naperville Police Department’s recent crackdown and highlights from the girls bowling regional.
UPDATE – The Exchange Club of Naperville issued the following statement:
The Exchange Club of Naperville Ribfest Confirms Toby Keith Performance
Mission driven and volunteer run, the Exchange Club of Naperville provides opportunities for its members to contribute to programs that benefit youth, strengthen the family, promote pride in our country, and honor military and public service providers.
Ribfest, this year, as it has for the past 29 years, will donate net proceeds to agencies working tirelessly to END child abuse and domestic violence in DuPage, Will, Cook and Kane Counties.
Ribfest talent is negotiated and selected months in advance of the event. At no time does the Exchange Club of Naperville make any political statement or endorsement. At no time are artists booked based on their political beliefs or actions.
Toby Keith will perform Friday, June 30th, at the 30th Anniversary Celebration of Ribfest.
Toby Keith tickets go on sale Friday, February 10th, at 10 a.m. through ribfest.net. The $30 general admission is limited so buy early.
On Saturday, the Exchange Club of Naperville made a decision to allow community members to post without restriction on the club’s Ribfest Facebook page. This was done as a measure of sensitivity to the current political climate and in a spirit of cooperation with our beloved community.
Ribfest’s Facebook page must return to its “job” of sharing information about Ribfest. Going forward, any post that is politically charged or not focused on Ribfest will be removed.
Hope to see you at Ribfest.
