Does Everybody Have an Angle?

For immediate release November 29, 2012

"Everybody's got an angle" a line delivered by Betty (Rosemary Clooney), one of the Haynes Sisters in the movie "White Christmas". You might ask yourself that same question about a consistently sold out 40 year old morning breakfast in Du Page County that starts at the freakishly early hour of 7am with over 1,000 people in attendance.

For the last 40 years people who include judges, TV news anchors, senators, police, county board members, school superintendants, congressmen, supreme court justices, waste water managers, mayor, Democrats, Republicans and Independents have all gathered in one room at the Hilton Indian Lakes Hotel to participate in something that would seem a little unusual, almost politically incorrect, with no money making agenda and no sponsors. One might ask oneself "what's the angle"? The event is the Du Page County Christmas Prayer Breakfast.

Since 1973 the Du Page Christmas Prayer Breakfast Committee's goal has been to not just honor and thank government officials but to pray for them and to encourage them to act justly.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Du Page County Christmas Breakfast and the morning includes music and an inspirational message from Dr. Philip Ryken, President of Wheaton College. Du Page County Board Chairman Dan Cronin will be providing an introductory message.

The breakfast will be on Thursday, December 13, 2012 from 7:00 am - 8:30 am and will be held at the Hilton Indian Lakes Resort, 250 W. Schick Road, Bloomingdale, IL 60108

Individual tickets are $24.00 each. If you would like to host a table of seven the cost is $168.00.
