VILLA PARK – The Save the Deicke Home Dance on Saturday raised more than $16,000 that will help the nonprofit keep its doors open a little longer.

The dance was hosted by the Villa Park VFW Post 2801 and included dinner, live music and dancing.

The Deicke Home, 1005 E. Division St, in Lombard, is a group residential home for adults with developmental disabilities. The home recently announced that it is in jeopardy of closing. For the past few months, the community, including schools, has rallied to raise money for the home.

The home was initially set to close March 31, but as of last week, the home announced it had raised enough money to remain open through July.

The Deicke Home has been open since 1983.
