The Exchange Club of Naperville recently distributed almost $550,000 to area charities that work to fight domestic violence and child abuse.
The funds were raised at last year’s 26th Annual Ribfest. The event includes rides and ribs and draws thousands of people to Knoch Park.
90 projects were reviewed by The Exchange Club and 52 were chosen to receive funding.
Over the 26 years of Ribfest, the exchange club has donated $14 million back into the community.
Ribfest 2014 is scheduled for July 3-6 in Knoch Park.
