The Ogden Dunes' Women's club was founded in 1938 by "the hearty pioneering females who had braved the rigors of year-round living in the dunes." This group came together to begin "friendly get-togethers and community benefits." Today, the ODWC exisits to promote community, recreation and service, and create a more friendly and sympathetic relationship among the women of Ogden Dunes.

Last year, as a result of this fundraiser, the ODWC was able to donate to the following organizations:

Ogden Dunes Community Church
Town of Ogden Dunes
Ogden Dunes Fire Department
Ogden Dunes ADA Committee
Ogden Dunes Animal Committee
Ogden Dunes Historical Society
Ogden Dunes Community Fund
Sandpiper Preschool
Dunes Learning Center
Boys & Girls Club of Portage
Portage Food Pantry
The Caring Place
Gabriel's Horn
Porter County Cancer Society
Breast Cancer Society
Opportunity Enterprises
Jacob's Ladder
Sojourner House
Porter County Animal Shelter
Independent Cat Society

Portage Township Education Foundation
Portage Packpack Program
Susan G. Komen Foundation
Humane Indiana Wildlife
Meals on Wheels

No one will be admitted without a valid photo ID (no exceptions). Proper identification is the responsibility of the attendee. Failure to present proper, valid photo identification (driver’s license or passport) will result in denial of entry with no refund offered.

Do I have to live in Ogden Dunes to attend?

No way! All are welcome.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Plenty of parking is available at the entrance to our town, including the South Shore parking lot, the Ogden Dunes Community Church parking lot, and a small area to the east of Kratz Field.

This is a "ravinia" style event, so be sure to bring your own tables and chairs (feel free to get creative and decorate)! No outside food or beverages are allowed. Be sure to bring extra cash the raffle!

Can I bring my pet?

As much as we love furry family members, we can not allow pets at this event.

I can't get a sitter, can I just sneak my kid in?

Please do not attempt to smuggle your child into the party as this event is only open to those who are 21 years of age or older. You deserve some "adult only" time anyway.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Click the "contact" link below.

Is there another way to register other than Eventbrite?

Yes, registration forms can be picked up at the OD Town Hall, located at 115 Hillcrest Rd, Portage, IN 46368. You can also use the "contact" link below and request an emailed registration form.

Where is this so called "Kratz Field?"

Kratz Field is a short 5 minute walk north from the entrance of our town, and is located on the west side of Hillcrest Rd (the main road into Ogden Dunes). Just look for the pretty lights, big tents, and all the people having a fabulous time.

Help. I need directions.

Ogden Dunes is well served by major highways including I-65, I-80, I-90 and I-94 as well as the Indiana Toll Road, I-80/90, U.S. Highway 20 and Indiana State Highway 12. Plug in our Town Hall address into your GPS:
115 Hillcrest Rd, Ogden Dunes, IN 46368

Or if driving isn't your thing, take the South Shore Line

If I arrive later in the evening, can I get a discount?

Your ticket price cannot be adjusted regardless of what time you arrive. Thanks for understanding!

What's the refund policy?

Since this is a fundraiser, no refunds will be given. Thank you for your support!
