CHAMPAIGN -- Central Illinois is gearing up for football season. It means giving the Illini a boost. Wednesday was the Quarterback Club's Ladies Day Luncheon. The fundraiser supports the football team.

Coaches' wives and cheerleaders were on hand to meet people. There were also raffle prizes and a silent auction. Organizers say they raised about $2,500. It's part of about $25,000 they've raised this year.
