To continue on the fun and success of our 100th Anniversary Gala, the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce & Industry is pleased to announce we will be hosting CARNIVAL: A Celebration of 101 Years!, on Saturday, February 6, 2016, at the Patrick Haley Mansion.

This vibrant dinner will be a celebration to honor Br. James Gaffney, FSC, President of Lewis University for his commitment to education in the Joliet Region over the last 3 decades.

CARNIVAL will be colorful and exciting, so we encourage our guests to join in by men wearing black tie optional attire and ladies wearing brightly colored, beautiful gowns. Since our Chamber board would like to view this as the "Businessman's Ball", tickets will be reasonably priced at $150.00 per guest. The evening will offer hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour, full open bar, three-course dual entree dinner, dinner wine, a whiskey and cigar bar, live entertainment, and much more! Invitations have been mailed to all Chamber members! Mail in your reservations, or reserve online here.




The Chamber will hold the 2016 EXPO & Spring Show at Louis Joliet Mall on Friday & Saturday, February 26 & 27th. We are changing it up this year and you will not want to miss out on this great advertising opportunity for your business. Registration and sponsorship information has been mailed to ALL Chamber members! Please visit www.jolietchamber.com or call the Chamber for more info.
