Gary to Host Olympic Champion

Gabrielle Douglas, the Olympic gold medal gymnast with Region ties will be in the area for a tribute held in her honor—and the public is invited to attend. A dinner and tribute, sponsored by the Gary Chamber of Commerce, will take place 6 pm this coming Monday (10/15) at Genesis Convention Center.  According to her web site, Gabby won the most prized possession in women's gymnastics, the Olympic all around gold medal becoming the first African-American to win the all-around event. Advance tickets are available for 25-dollars each, and there will be a limited number of autographed photos available to the public during the event.  Tickets are available for purchase at (219) 885-7407, or e-mail Executive Director Chuck Hughes at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
