Financial Plus Credit Union and the Swartz Creek Chamber team up every year to sponsor the event that includes raffles for gift baskets, and plenty of opportunities to meet other area business professionals in a festive atmosphere. Event organizers also collect donations of non-perishable food items that are donated to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.
