A 2nd Presidential Pre-Inaugural Ball is scheduled on Tuesday, December 11th  for seniors age 55 and older in the Crystal Ballroom at the Chicago Hyatt Regency Hotel, 151 East Wacker Drive/West Tower from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Four years ago, 750 eclectic Chicago metro area seniors, women dressed in classy red and men in red ties, came together to salute President-Elect Barack Obama. Illinois Senator Mattie Hunter presented this event.

Illinois Senators Mattie Hunter (3rd) and Emil Jones, III (14th) are the presenters of this fun-filled event.  The 18-member Generations Big Band wearing tuxedos and red ties will headline the entertainment followed by Chicago’s 5-octave Vanessa Holmes, producer of A Tribute to the Motown Greats; Songbird Loretta Lee and our DJ will pay tribute in song Frank Sinatra; Louis Armstrong and Sam Cook.  He will also provide great dance music and we’re looking for 50 good men for our dancing segment entitled:  “Dancing with the Celebrities”.

Tickets are moderately priced at $35 which covers the cost of the delicious luncheon meal. Tables of 10 are $350. Each attendee will have an opportunity to receive a free photo, a chance to win nice raffle prizes which includes one of the delicious/pretty cakes showcased at each table and enjoy some of Chicago’s Senior Clowns.

Checks should be made payable to the non-profit Institute for Positive Living and mailed to 435 East 35th Street, 2nd Floor, Suite 1, Chicago, IL, 60615.  The lower left section of the check should read “senior luncheon”.  This is not a fundraiser.  It’s raising big FUN for our Chicago metro area seniors.

For more information, please contact Deloris MeBain, MeBain Media Group who is the Event Manager at dmebain@aol.com or call her at 708 533-6558.  We are also looking for sponsors and vendors to share pertinent information and products/give-aways for seniors.
