Elgin Home for the Holidays is Coming to Town

ehfth14It’s beginning to look a lot like…well, you know how the rest goes.

Elgin Young Professionals Network, in conjunction with Gail Borden Public Library, is once again privileged to present Elgin Home for the Holidays.

This year’s cooperative marketing initiative unites 22 area non-profit organizations in the spirit of collaborative promotion of all the holiday events the Elgin community has to offer.

The Elgin Home for the Holidays campaign is highlighted by the annual kick-off extravaganza on Saturday, November 8 from 1-4pm at the Gail Borden Public Library, 270 N. Grove Avenue in Elgin. The kick-off event features horse drawn carriage rides, Ecker Center’s Festival of Trees exhibit, non-profit expo, photos with Santa, kids craft activities, holiday entertainment and much more!
