The Classic is a destination event to showcase the region’s talent and to also serve as a destination event to attract others to Northwest Indiana. The Classic is annually themed toward education. This year our theme will also incorporate “Civility”. Today more than any other time it is important that we support our young people and guide their paths toward positive endeavors. Your important support is necessary and respectfully requested to share the news of this event.

Classic week kicks off with a Chamber business Corporate Luncheon featuring former region native and retired baseball great Kenny Lofton. The Chamber and the community audience in attendance will be well informed about the career and the person Mr. Kenny Lofton. Here are the details below:
