The Chillicothe Rugby Football Club will host a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on May 7.

The event will be based around the day’s two rugby matches.

The Peoria Rugby Football Club Renegades will take on the Twin City Tornados and the Chillicothe Barbarians will battle their rival Metamora All Reds in a rematch of the 2010 State Championship game.

The games will be played at Chillicothe Junior High School with the first game starting at noon.   

Gates open at 11 a.m.

There will be a silent and live auction as well as food.
