A Huntley based non-profit organization that assists local veterans is hosting a fun, family-friendly event this weekend, that will include a cornhole tournament and more.

Citizens 4 Our Vets (C4RV) will have their biggest fundraiser this Saturday, October 3 beginning at 8am, with plenty of activities for everyone at Project Veterans Park in Huntley.
