Picnic Venue Partnership Opens More Dates and Times at the Perfect Downtown Location

With WCF's strengthened partnership with the UIC Athletic Grounds, clients have set a record pace for reserving and booking dates for the summer 2012 event season.  Location is the key to an event and an element that requires a planner with access to the right venues.  WCF has access to the best private venues in Chicago – CITY & SUBURBS.  From the incredible facilities at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), located within blocks of the Chicago Loop, to locations throughout the suburbs, WCF has access to the premier picnic grounds in the Chicagoland area.  If desired, WCF can even transfrom your company’s property into your own private picnic grounds.  But if you're looking for a spectacular location in the city, UIC is a fantastic venue for your group.

WCF and UIC have recently soldified their partnership with a new agreement allowing WCF priority access as the only corporate event planner for the UIC Athletic Grounds.  This agreement offers WCF the necessary flexibility to hold dates, streamline event approvals and offer more dates and times to its clients.  This partnership truly makes the best summer outing venue available to more clients, for more dates and for more times than ever before.

UIC's recently renovated outdoor athletic facilities, located within blocks of the Chicago Loop, provide two separate well-groomed areas (North and South) that include the following amenities (dependent on availability):

  • Collegiate softball diamond complete with stands, dugouts and scoreboard
  • Sand volleyball courts
  • Tennis courts
  • Spectacular view of the Chicago skyline
  • Expansive, private grassy areas that are perfect for many outdoor activities
  • Private, fenced-in grounds with restroom facilities and landscaped picnic area
  • Path for bicycling, roller-blading or jogging
  • Ample parking
  • Easily accessible by public transportation

Whether your event is in the city, suburbs, Lake Geneva or anywhere in the country, WCF has the resources and partners to find the best private venue to fit your needs and objectives.  For more information on utilizing WCF’s team of expert summer outing planners, contact your sales representative today or  Request a Proposal .
