About Us

Annual Charitable Events

The Pasfield House has masterfully promoted itself with almost no advertising budget. Early on it was determined hosting community events bring community minded citizens to the Pasfield House. Once someone observes the beauty, adaptability and efficiency of the Pasfield House, referrals are likely to be made for hosting an individual or organization's own social event.

Within the last year the Pasfield House has hosted and/or partially underwritten Community Events like the Hurricane Katrina Relief Effort for the Red Cross, the University Women Annual Holiday Desert Party Benefit, the Springfield Green Wine and Cheese Soirée, the Oak Ridge Cemetery Home for the Friendless Memorial Fund Gathering, the Friends of Sangamon Valley Event Fundraiser and just recently the SOS for the Homeless 4th of July Celebration. All of these events have helped the local community at critical times creating a tremendous amount of Good Will. These events have also brought a diverse group of citizens to the Pasfield House, many for the first time. Good Will and exposure is paying off in referrals and recommendations for future bookings.

To further expand upon the good will resulting from sponsored community events, Leone also hopes to establish annual Pasfield Sponsored Events that may benefit other local charities or causes. Ideas that are still being formulated are 1) Annual Pasfield House Easter Egg Roll on behalf of the Big Brother Big Sister Program, Pasfield Golf Course Outing and BBQ serving youth golf programs, and an Annual 4th of July Celebration for the Springfield Overflow Shelter for the Homeless.

Annual 4th of July Celebration

Each July 4th Independence Day, the Pasfield House opens it’s doors to the public to raise funds to help shelter Springfield”s homeless population. Many good citizens like Alderman Frank Edwards and State Representatives Poe and Bauer along with several retail vendors like Pease’s Candy and Truasky Meats join together with Pasfield House owner Tony Leone to provide food items for a ticketed event. Everyone knows that the Pasfield House grounds are possibly the best location to watch a fireworks extravaganza at the State Capitol. With all the food, facility and volunteer efforts, like those of the Linconland Community College Hospitality Program, we’re proud to point out that all the ticket proceeds go directly to the shelter organization. The annual event is entitled.

S O S for the Homeless, it stands for Springfield’s Overflow Shelter. Much more is needed every year but this event helps to kick-start the community efforts and is a great way to bring attention to this critical need when to many lives are at risk of harm during Illinois winters.

Annual Springfield Green Wine Soirée

Each year Springfield Green, Mayor Davlin’s effort to beautify the City of Springfield, does more and more to identify and help beautify gateways and major byways within the City. The private funds that are raised together with donated product and volunteers help improve landscaping visibility for welcoming visitors and citizens throughout the city. The scope has been on to great success from the start.

Since its inception the Pasfield House has been the venue to kick-off the annual fundraising drive for the spring planting efforts of Springfield Green. Each spring the Pasfield House is the host location for a Springfield green wine and cheese soirée entitled Decanted Delights. Usually the kickoff event for the Springfield green annual fundraising activity, the beautiful landscaped grounds of the Pasfield House becomes the prefect setting for a spring event. Each year attendance grows as does the public awareness of the Greening of Springfield. The Pasfield House is committed and does all it can by participating in the companion Adopt a Street Program, adopting Pasfield Street as well as planting neighborhood flowers ( Stella Dor’a Day Lillie’s) which are starting to take on a trend.

Thank you letter from Springfield Mayor, Tim Davlin

Pasfield House Easter Egg Roll

Our nation’s Capital has had a long tradition at the White House each year holding an annual Easter Egg Roll. This year the Pasfield House hopes to begin an Illinois Capital tradition by having a traditional Easter Egg Roll.

Joining with Springfield’s own Pease’s Candy, the Pasfield House will host a classic Easter Egg Roll on the Saturday before Easter Sunday. Invited are children ages 7-11 that are part of the local Big Brother / Big Sister Program. A beautiful place to gather, Pease’s Candy and the Pasfield House hope to provide a magical place for the children to gather with their adult supporters that do so much to strengthen the youth of our community. After a carefree day the children return home with a special memory that will be shared by all that attend, a memory we hope will last a lifetime.
