PEORIA Ill -- A fundraiser was held Saturday night at Fox Pub on Sommer Street in Peoria for the Children's Hospital of Illinois.

There is live music, door prizes, and raffles throughout the night.

The theme is "The Birth of the Royal Baby".

Co-owner, Matt Rixner said it is his way of giving back to the hospital that helped save his son's life last year.

"We feel like we have a venue where anyway we can give back, we want to. For everything they did for us, we definitely want to give back to them. They did a lot for us."

20% of the pub's business today, along with the all of the proceeds from the event, will go to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Children's Hospital.
