Our Community Partner Program is designed to benefit not-for-profit organizations throughout Central Illinois with exposure and financial reward. Each of our concerts can bring in up to 1,000 people, and through our marketing efforts we reach thousands more in the Greater Peoria area.


  • The HFO makes a donation of $500 from the concert’s proceeds to the partner and gives back 20% of ticket sales made by the partnering organization.

  • A representative of yours introduces your organization from the stage before the concert begins

  • A table is provided for you to display information about your organization on concert night

  • A leaflet you provide will be included in each program

  • Photos/slides of your choice will be shown in our powerpoint presentation that runs before the concert and at intermission

  • Your organization will be included in the concert program with a full page ad that you provide

  • Social media exposure on our networks before the concert

  • Your organization’s name included in concert marketing materials

  • Two complimentary concert tickets
