At the request of Evan Knoblauch’s family, Friday night’s “Evan’s Friday Night” at St. Bede Academy will go on as planned.
At around 6, you’re invited to join first responders and family and friends at the top of St. Bede Lane for a parade down to the football field. A flag football game will then take place in remembrance of the 20-year-old St. Bede graduate who died Wednesday after a battle with cancer.
Prior to festivities at St. Bede, first responders will gather at Becks in Oglesby at around 5:45 and have a procession into La Salle and Peru before arriving at the academy. You’re invited to line the streets of the procession and light up red light bulbs if you have them at your home.
The Ptak Funeral Home is handling arrangements for Evan Knoblauch. Service details are still pending.
