HAMMOND---The Greater Hammond Chamber of Commerce’s Chillin’ with the Chamber – Louisiana Saturday Night is still scheduled for Saturday, August 12, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., but has moved locations from the new Southeastern Louisiana University Railroad South Park to the lower level of Southeastern’s Strawberry Stadium Parking Garage off of Ned McGehee Drive.

“A little rain never stopped a fun Louisiana Saturday night, and it certainly won’t keep someone from winning $10,000 at Chillin’ with the Chamber,” President and CEO Melissa Bordelon said. “We were excited to celebrate under the oaks for this event, but the persistent rain this week and the forecast for even more leading to Saturday has the site a bit swampy. The change of location offers plenty of cover and dry ground for a great time to be had by all.”

Guests will still enjoy live music from Steve Rhodus and Friends, as well as Louisiana fare and libations from participating Chamber restaurants and beverage vendors. Participating members include Southeastern Catering by Aramark, Don’s Seafood and Steak House, Le Fleur De Lis, Firehouse Subs, The Jambalaya Shoppe, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, Super King Seafood, Zaxby’s, Jim Carey Distributing Company, Champagne Beverage Co. and the Crescent Bar & Package Liquor.

Each $100 ticket admits two to the event, and provides a chance to win the $10,000 grand prize or the second prize of a Louisiana-themed Mignon Faget bracelet from George Ibert Jewelry & Gifts.
