We hope you’ll be joining us at our Business After Hours!

On April 21, Heart Technologies and Barrack’s Hospitality Group will cohost a Business After Hours at EastPort Banquet Center from 5–7pm. East Peoria Chamber of Commerce is serving as the chamber sponsor for this event.

This event will be unlike most Business After Hours you may have attended. We will be inviting members of the public to join us for Great HEART Give voting. On April 8, we narrowed it down to ten finalists, and this event will serve as our first in-person voting site! Voting in person will count for DOUBLE the votes, so supporters will not want to miss this opportunity! Be on the lookout for the Heart table with computers to vote on, and make sure you wear your “Great HEART Give – I VOTED!” sticker with pride! For more information on this year’s Great HEART Give, see our website.

This event will also feature delicious treats from Barrack’s. While we don’t want to give everything away, you will definitely want to come for hot and cold hors d’œvres, a carving station, cash bar, and cheesecake martini station. Yum! Also, if you’ve ever been to an event with Barrack’s, you’ll know their service is incredible with extremely friendly and welcoming staff. They know how to create an inviting atmosphere!

According to the weather reports, we can expect warm air tomorrow, which makes EastPort a great location for this time of year! The banquet center features an outdoor patio with beautiful views of the Illinois River and EastPort Marina. It will surely be a Business After Hours for the books!

We look forward to seeing you there!
