The Community Character Coalition of Elk Grove will conduct its fourth annual Celebration of Character from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21 at the Elk Grove Pavilion, 1000 Wellington Ave., Elk Grove Village.
The event is open to the public and residents are invited to celebrate the exceptional character of their peers in the greater Elk Grove community.
The celebration features live entertainment, free grilled food, beverages and a split-the-pot raffle. Tim Hannig, host of the ProKids Show, pkshow.com, will share his positive message of respect and caring with the audience.
Attendees will be asked by members of the Elk Grove Police Department to pledge to uphold the Six Pillars of Characters Counts -- Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship -- and will receive a sticker certifying they have good character.
Following the ProKids show, recognitions will be handed out honoring community members whose actions have demonstrated one of the Six Pillars of Character Counts.
Many area dignitaries, including Elk Grove Mayor Craig Johnson, are expected to take part in the community celebration.
The mission of the Community Character Coalition is "To build the core of community strength" through the practice of the Six Pillars of Character Counts. For more information, visit ccceg.org.
