Networking Events
Tuesday, June 25
7:00 p.m.
Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres with dolphins and whales with the Oracle Retail community. The private event will take place at the beautiful Shedd Aquarium. The aquarium opened in 1930 and housed the greatest variety of sea life under one roof at the time. It was a massive undertaking that over a course of a year, more than a million gallons of seawater were shipped by rail from Florida to fill the galleries.

Tuesday, June 25
10:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m.
After spending the evening exploring the wonderous Shedd’s Aquarium, we invite you to join us back at the Fairmont Hotel in the Moulin Rouge lounge. Continue your conversations, enjoy a cocktail and get your groove on. The lounge will transform into a party featuring our friends from Bolo313. If you sing, play an instrument or just like to dance, make plans to join us back at the Fairmont. We hope to see more customers joining the band on the stage this year. Contact Alexander Marlowe,, to set up a rehearsal time and inquire about the playlist potential to join the band.  Click here for Bolo song selections.
