Chamber’s Holiday Party

ugly-sweater-partyThe Duneland Chamber of Commerce is hosting its Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party & 2013 New Member Reception on Wednesday, December 11, from 4pm – 6pm. The event will be held at Gelsosomo’s Pub in Chesterton, located at 371 Indian Boundary Road.

Tickets for the event are $20 for Chamber and community members, and only $10 for Chamber members who joined in 2013 (discount applies to principal managers and owners). Tickets include heavy appetizers, one drink ticket and one raffle ticket. Guests are encouraged to wear their most vibrant holiday sweater for the “Ugliest Christmas Sweater Competition.” The winner of the contest will receive a trophy and bragging rights for the coming year.

“This is a really fun, informal event which is perfect for new members to attend. Guests are welcome to stay for the entire two hours of the event, or they can drop in, eat and network for as long or little as their schedules allow,” says Heather Ennis, the Chamber’s Executive Director. “And, if people don’t have holiday sweaters to wear, we’ve got a collection for sale at the Chamber, located at 220 Broadway in Chesterton.”
