Dakota Inn Pours Out Its Heart for Kids Fighting Cancer

The Dakota Inn Bar and Grill of Alsip sponsored a Luau on September 15 that included free Hawaiian food, entertainment compliments of Liquid Hot Magma, drink specials, a split-the-pot raffle and 20 raffle baskets that raised more than $2,700 for the Treasure Chest Foundation.

Dakota Inn was established in 1994 by proprietors Jim Bradford and Angele Joachim. The friendly, neighborhood bar often hosts benefits to help raise money for local charities. Owner Jim Bradford said, "I am just so proud of everyone that showed up for this event." Co-owner Angele Joachim added, "Children are our future and if they are sick and in the hospital, it's the least we can do for children and teens fighting cancer."
