Stems & Stilettos Proceeds


With the completion of another Stems and Stilettos Chamber fund raising event the agencies of Blessings  in a BackPack and the Walldogs were presented proceeds from the evening.  Receiving a check from Doug Patterson fund raising chairman is Gene Anderson of the Walldog program while Laura Anderson of Blessings in a BackPack accepts their reward from Chamber Executive Director Jack Dzuris.  Annually the Streator Chamber shares the proceeds from the event to community groups that continue to support and give back to the Streator population for a job well done.

Thank You for a Very Successful Stems & Stilettos

Another Streator Chamber of Commerce and Industry Stems and Stilettos has been completed with a great deal of refreshments, socializing, networking and just plain good fun throughout the evening.

I would like to take a minute to thank you and all who participated in the event in whatever level. The Chamber is grateful for the support of the good people of Streator and throughout, and without your continued participation our operations and efforts would be limited.  We’re most appreciative to all who contribute to the Streator Area’s “Quality of Life”.

We’re all in this together – the ball has begun rolling, let’s keep it in motion. Good things are going on in Streator and more is out there if we can pull together offering solutions and not just identifying the challenges we may have.

A Big Thanks,
