The Illinois Tech/IITRI University Holiday Party will take place on Tuesday, December 11 from 3:30–6:30 p.m. in Hermann Hall.

The party will feature an assortment of food items, two free drink tickets, raffle prizes, a photo booth, and dancing.

Please consider donating a new toy or a child’s winter hat, scarf or gloves. Donation boxes will be set up at the party’s registration table. Please note that monetary donations cannot be accepted.
