10th Annual Burger Night
Dubuque Eagles Club, 1175 Century Drive
behind Kennedy Mall
Join us for Burger Night at the Dubuque Eagles Club on Saturday, May 4.
Stop by anytime between 5:15 to 7:45 PM for a delicious burger, cheeseburger or chicken strips. All donations and proceeds from the Eagles Club Burger Night benefit Opening Doors “A Bed of Hope” Program, which provides beds for women and children who are experiencing homelessness in our community. Eat with us and help fight homelessness.
Where will you sleep tonight? “A Bed of Hope” is Opening Doors’ year-long fundraising program that allows community members or groups to play a vital role in the shelter of women and children who are experiencing homelessness. Teresa Shelter and Maria House provide a total of 54 beds each night. So, every year, Opening Doors offers 19,710 beds while providing life skills and goal setting to help them become self-sufficient.
Just a $10 donation provides a warm bed with support services for a woman or child in our community. Donors may support as many beds as they would like.
Many different types of groups have taken on this project, including churches, congregations, businesses, civic organizations, schools, colleges, families, and individuals.
- Black Hills Energy sponsored 50 bednights in January of 2019.
- Our inaugural group for “A Bed of Hope,” Holy Spirit Pastorate, raised almost $12,000 during two consecutive Lenten seasons, sponsoring over 1,200 “bed nights” for a homeless woman or child.
- St. Columbkille’s Catholic School “adopted” Opening Doors for an entire school year! All of the students from kindergarten to 5th grade got involved in a variety of fundraising activities. Faculty, staff and parents participated as well.
- The Dubuque Eagle’s Club “Eagle Eye on the Future” committee, lead by Michael Duehr, hosts an annual Burger Night in April for “A Bed of Hope.”
