The 20th Annual Corks & Forks fundraising event will be presented as a “virtual community event” through a live streaming broadcast on April 30 (6:30-9:30 pm) from our gallery in the Madden Arts Center. Corks & Forks has always been the Decatur Area Arts Council’s biggest and most crucial fundraiser of the year. 

  • The planned three-hour broadcast will be a hybrid of a network morning show and a classic telethon. 
  • Numerous segments will be dedicated to wine and food tastings, guests from sponsors, restaurants, distributors, and beyond (via ZOOM)
  • Local artist Ed Lozano will be creating an original piece of artwork live during the evening.
  • Each donor making a gift of $20 or more will be entered into a drawing for one of a limited number of randomly selected "Thank You" gifts.  "Thank You" Gifts contributed by:
    - Baby Cakes Cake Bites
    - Children’s Museum of Illinois
    - Decatur Area Arts Council
    - Famous Wine & Spirits
