December Meeting Christmas Party

In lieu of our monthly meeting, CIFC invites you to attend our Ugly Sweater Holiday Party on Thursday, December 20, 7-9pm in the Grill Room, Wyndham City Centre Hotel, Springfield IL.

This year’s party will focus on socializing and networking among individuals representing or interested in our local film community. While there are surprises planned for the evening, scheduled activities include:

* Ugly Sweater Contest. Wear your ugliest or most favorite holiday sweater – and you could win a prize! “Secret Santas” will be at the event checking out all the holiday ware and selecting individuals to be part of the contest!!!

* Christmas Cards for Caring – holiday cards will be distributed that you can have signed by other attendees. Everyone participating will be eligible for our door prize drawings. The signed cards will then be given to residents of a local nursing home.

* Membership Giveaway – make a minimum $1 donation to the Dean Williams Scholarship fund and you could win free CIFC membership for 2019.

* CIFC will provide complimentary cookies, coffee and tea during the party. Attendees can purchase additional food and beverages through The Grill Restaurant and Bar.

Please note that there will be a brief meeting prior to the start of the party where CIFC members will vote on the 2019 Board of Directors and a special announcement made regarding the 91st Academy Awards Red Carpet Viewing Party.

The Central Illinois Film Commission meets every third Thursday of the month in the Grill Breakfast Room, Wyndham City Centre Hotel (former Hilton), Springfield, IL, from 7-9pm. Free parking is available on the street, or you can park in the Wyndham garage for a small fee.
