MHRL Celebrated 50th Anniversary of Fair Diddley®

Fair Diddley® 2018 was a bit of a wet wonderland, but the rain didn't dampen the spirits of shoppers or crafters! We thank everyone who braved the damp, cold day to support those with mental health related issues in McHenry County!

Fall Diddley® 2018 is scheduled for October 13th and 14th, 2018 at the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere, IL. Last year MHRL hosted an 8th tent that increased the number of vendors to 350! Please mark your calendars now for our 2018 show! 

Remember - 100% of net proceeds from Fair and Fall Diddley® are donated to 18 McHenry County agencies that deal with mental health related issues. Additional funding throughout the year is made to other non-profit agencies through our Immediate Grants Fund! Without your attendance and participation, this wouldn't be possible!

If you are interested in donating to the Mental Health Resource League, please visit our Contact Us page - or make a safe and secue donation via our Paypal donation page!.
