Seeing the beautiful Chicago river sights and smelling the fresh lake air with a glass of wine in hand might just be one of the best ways to experience the amazing summer season, but not all of us have a mega yacht or antique wooden sailboat at our disposal.
The Kellogg School has kindly extended an invitation to the Wharton Alumni Club of Chicago's members, families and friends to participate in its annual Lake Michigan cruise. This will be an evening of cocktails, food and cruising past some of Chicago's iconic landmarks for 2 hours. Enjoy Chicago's beautiful cityscapes from the outdoor deck or indoor enclosure while networking with alumni. Our vibrant alumni communities, the city's history, and a seasonal backdrop are sure to deliver a memorable excursion.
The Summer of George vessel is a beautiful multi-level cruising ship, with lots of outdoor space, as well as full bars on each of the upper and lower decks. The top deck is completely open and doubles as a dance area under the stars, or a nice place to stand and experience the sights. The boat has lots of indoor areas to relax, mingle, dance, or enjoy a nice dinner.
Boarding begins at 5:45 p.m. Cruise 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Early Bird Pricing: $65 through September 6.
