  • Lincoln Property Company, owner of Eleven33 + Oak Park Place Apartments, and Diamond sponsor says: 

    "We are excited to sponsor Bite Nite for the second year in a row. This event is so loved by not only us, but the entire Oak Park community. The food and atmosphere of the event are a great way to start the new year. We’re honored to be a part of such a close-knit community and have such a strong relationship with the Chamber."
