Save the Dunes Announced as 2024 Spotlight Organization


Michigan City – December 15, 2023 – The Lakefront Career Network (LCN) recently announced Save the Dunes as their 2024 Spotlight Organization. Save the Dunes protects and advocates for the Indiana dunes, Lake Michigan, and the surrounding natural areas for the health and vitality of the environment, and the community.


Each year LCN, the young professionals committee of the Michigan City Chamber of Commerce, uses an application process to choose one nonprofit to build a unique partnership with for an entire year. In what is now its seventh partnership, LCN will work with Save the Dunes to recruit volunteers and members as well as raise funds for projects. LCN will do this through supporting the advancement of its mission, new events, givebacks, and fundraising that young professionals and other community members can participate in.


Incoming LCN Chair, Kyla Sinkiewicz stated, “Lakefront Career Network is elated to partner with Save The Dunes in 2024!  With our shared goals of advocacy and community engagement, we look forward to spotlighting them and fostering heightened awareness, throughout the region.” The partnership will also include a planned day of giving and other fundraising efforts to boost our member support and do some much-needed repairs to the Barker House.

Save the Dunes Development Manager, Lisa Scheller, stated her gratitude for the partnership, “We are honored to have been selected as the 2024 LCN Spotlight Organization and the opportunity to work alongside so many amazing young professionals.”
