Capacity crowd of about 150 members and friends of the Chamber enjoyed a cruise aboard the intimate, sleek and modern yacht 'Chicago Elite' along the shores of Lake Michigan. The outing featured tasty food, open bar, DJ dance music, breathtaking views, and the thrilling annual Chicago Air & Water Show.

We were also pleased and honored that the short official program of the cruise included Mr. Kazimierz 'Casey' Chlebek's announcement of his intent to become a candidate for the US Senate in next year's elections.

Much of the overall success of the event was made possible by the generosity of our sponsors and partners, including HLK Homes , PRCUA , Up-To-Sound , Polamer , General Masonry Supply Venture , Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices , Casey Chlebek for US Senate , Porte Brown , Dziennik Zwiazkowy , Polskie Radio , and Polvision .

"Even though each year we consider different options and ideas for a summer event, we always choose the boat cruise due to the large interest by members and friends. Clearly, each year the event is different and unique in its own way. The PACC keeps growing and evolving, as does the downtown area and the city's skyline, and so the annual cruise provides the ultimate setting to observe these changes," explaines PACC president Iwona Filipiak.

As we look forward to our future outings and other events, we recommend that you relive the August 18, 2019 event by visiting our gallery of photos by Teresa Potasiak and Darek Pilka ( Dziennik Zwiazkowy ), and media coverage by clicking on the links below:
