Brother John (John Kattke) and his Band will provide music for the event. The group is a Chicago-based jazz band. Brother John's Band regularly plays at Buddy Guy's Legends.

The event will raise money for the Woodridge Community Resource Center, part of the support services department of the Woodridge Police Department.
This is the Woodridge Rotary Club's first time having an event strictly to raise funds for one particular organization in the community. The Club chose to support the CRC because of its mission of providing quality programs and services to strengthen family values in a population of Woodridge that does not always have such opportunities. The CRC partners with many community organizations and agencies in their efforts to provide homework assistance, language and computer literacy, art appreciation classes, team building activities, violence prevention, and cultural diversity appreciation workshops.
