Community Involvement

Avanti’s Peoria has been a pillar of the area for over 50 years! Which is why we have strongly believed in giving back to the community at all levels who we rely on for our business. You, our patrons, support us and we look to support the many wonderful programs that benefit and nurture Central Illinois. In our 50+ year history, Avanti’s Peoria has donated over $3.5 million back to our community.
