Cheeseburgers in Paradise is an annual event
which gives geocachers an opportunity to meet up with
other geocachers, to put faces with names, swap
stories, eat good food and have a good time. But more
importantly it's an opportunity to help your local
community by making a donation to the Northern Illinois

Virtual Food Drive - Donate online:
Because the food bank can stretch a dollar much
further than you can by buying in bulk monetary
donations directly to the food bank are ideal. The
Northern Illinois Food Bank has setup a custom
donation page just for our event. You can make
donations of $5 or more online.
Visit our NIFB custom donation site.
If you wish to make a last minute monetary donation at
the event please make your check payable to NIFB as
GoGeocaching.com will not accept cash donations.
Alternatively the donation web site will remain open
through July 31st.
Cheeseburgers In Paradise history - This event takes it's name from an event held in 2003 by Bspang and twocampers.
The tradition got a new start in 2009 and our donations have grown each year. Our best event was in 2013 when we
collected 274 pounds of non-parishable food items and $850 including corporate matching donations with 100% of the
donations going to the NIFB.
THANK YOU for participating!

community donates up to a total of $100 will
