Halloween Bash

  • Join SBAC members for our second annual Halloween Bash on October 23rd.
  • Make great connections, see “interesting” costumes and enjoy great refreshments in an awesome rooftop party-room at Avenue East, Rooftop, 160 E. Illinois, Chicago, IL 
  • The inability of many Illinois politicians to recognize the important role the small business community plays in driving our economy is scary so the Halloween Bash is a fitting time to come together and support the cause.  
  • Thank you to our sponsors
