CENTRAL ILLINOIS-- Soon, people will be heading to prom in an effort to solve central Illinois' hunger problem.

The Eastern Illinois Foodbank's prom fundraiser is on March 8th from 7:00 -11:00 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Last year the event raised $44,000 and this year's prom court is trying to raise even more. 

The two people who raise the most money are named king and queen of the event.
WCIA 3's Cynthia Bruno is in the running for the crown this year. 
If you're interested in donating to her, or anyone else on prom court, visit the Prom Benefit's website.
