If you are already a South Bend Regional Chamber member business or Visit South Bend Mishawaka hospitality partner/advertiser, there is no hosting fee. If you are a nonmember, there is a $400 fee. Hosts provide light appetizers and have, at a minimum, cash bar available. Establishment must be the right "fit" for a YP@5 Happy Hour. For consideration, contact Briana Stiner at 574.400.4010.
