It Takes A Village -

September 25, 2021

See you in 2021


It Takes A Virtual Village is an annual fundraising event for the Duneland Exchange Club (DXC). Under normal years, this fundraising event takes place at the Village Tavern in Porter, Indiana. The event features Ed Strudas from Allgood Band, a corn hole competition, silent auction, raffles, food, drinks, and a day of enjoying family and friends. 

The nasty coronavirus virus has forced us to reimagine this annual event and make it a virtual event. We can't gather in person, but we can still enjoy great music, a silent auction, and a raffle, while raising money for the DXC. 

DXC is a service club comprised of hard-working, passionate, and dedicated men and women who volunteer their time and talents to help make the Duneland communities a great place to live. Our club focuses on four key areas of programming: country (Americanism), community, children/family, and child abuse prevention. Child abuse prevention is our main focus. 

Here is how we are making a difference in child abuse prevention. DXC is the sole sponsor of the Body Safety program, Safer, Smarter Teens program, and the Stewards for Children Programs through Dunebrook. These programs educate and empower children from kindergarten to seniors in high school to protect their bodies, understand the warning signs of unsafe situations, and encourages them to seek help. The Stewards for Children program educates teachers on how to identify abuse and the steps to report it. We know that 95% of child maltreatment is preventable through education, which is why we invest in these programs.
