Heels for Meals 2018

Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana continues to support the community through many outlets, such as its unique fundraising approach. One prime example is the fundraising event Heels for Meals. The event prompts guests to sport the funkiest, most outrageous heels, flats, or socks in order to compete for the winning spot in those three different categories. Heels for Meals was specifically designed to raise funds for the Meals on Wheels endowment fund in order to support their long term service to the community.

Festival of the Lakes 2018

Earlier in the month, Mayor Thomas McDermott and City of Hammond officials released a humorous promotional video to publicize the upcoming Festival of the Lakes. A Region tradition, the festival promises five nights of food, fun, carnival rides, and a slew of awesome musical performances to cap off the evenings. McDermott and his crew knew the festival deserved a proper level of hype, and they pulled out all the stops with their video. Judging by the success of the event’s first evening, the Festival of the Lakes 2018 is more than living up to its hype.
