Holiday Party (12/14)


WRAPUP:   Great friends, great food, great time!!  We had a large turnout this year, and it was a fun time visiting and catching up with people.  Lots of snacks, deserts, munchies and drinks.

We had some incredible raffle presents and giveaways from Bill Jacobs MINI, Ridemakerz, Knauz MINI, as well as from members and friends of the Chicago MINI Motoring Club.

Huge thanks to Taylor for hosting this party again!!

    Hi Steve,

    I’m with Knauz MINI and would like to reintroduce myself to the MINI club. Besides representing MINI, I’m also a MINI owner. It would be great to join you for Sunday’s party. I look forward to being in contact soon.

    Kindest regards,

    Jason Hartong

    Hi everyone! We’re looking forward to seeing you all. To Jonathan’s question about food, above, please feel free (but not obligated) to bring anything you’d like to share. Again, no obligation. Just bring yourself and have a great time! Or, bring yourself and a dish and have a great time! Either way is just great!!
