HAMMOND | Opportunity Enterprises hosts an event from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Indiana Welcome Center.

Guests will have a special sneak peek of the new window scene to be unveiled at the start of the “A Christmas Story” Comes Home exhibit.

Guests will be offered hors d’oeuvres and drinks while they stroll the streets of downtown Hohman, a fictional Indiana town which was a disguise for Hammond in the holiday classic “A Christmas Story."

The exhibit, which is presented in agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, features six animatronic window scenes, Christmas trees decorated by local businesses and organizations, as well as numerous family events throughout the holiday season.

“We’re very excited the South Shore CVA is allowing our fundraiser to be hosted in conjunction with the unveiling of their seventh window,” said David Stupay, president and CEO of Opportunity Enterprises.

Tickets cost $30 each, and will be available at the door. Checks or cash will be accepted. For more information, or to RSVP, contact Linda Hazen at (219) 464-9621, ext. 290, or linda.hazen@oppent.org.
