Hoffman Estates Chamber of Commerce & Industry President & CEO Tricia A. O'Brien welcomed new chamber members Christine & Gary Pappin Dream Vacations during this month's Chit N Chat networking event. Hoffman Estates Mayor Bill McLeod, Village Trustees, and chamber members were on hand for the Ribbon Cutting ceremony held at Garibaldi's Italian Eatery in the village. Mayor McLeod cut the ribbon with the business owners and presented them with the key to the village.

"Congratulations to business owners Christine and Gary Pappin of Dream Vacations for their ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Bill McLeod, Village Trustees and Chamber Members at Garibaldi's Italian Eatery. The Dream Vacations travel team will handle every detail for you and ensure a vacation filled with cherished memories! We welcome Dream Vacations into our Chamber of Commerce here in Hoffman Estates," said Tricia O'Brien.


Dream Vacations Specialist and Franchise Owners Christine & Gary Pappin recently reinvested in their business, which was originally started in 2005, under the Cruises Inc., brand name, by purchasing a franchise from parent company World Travel Holdings. As part of World Travel Holdings, one of the nation's top travel retail networks, Dream Vacations offers consumers the lowest possible pricing on cruise and land vacations through its relationships with every major cruise line and many tour operators.

"Gary and I have traveled personally and professionally for more than 40 years. That love has taken us across the globe and, above all, created some memories that we can cherish forever. Memories we hope we can share with you," said Christine Pappin. "Whether you are planning a relaxing escape, a girlfriend getaway, a man-cation, a romantic honeymoon or a family reunion, your experience will be completely hassle-free and tailored to your wants and needs. We are travel memory makers, and we are here to handle every detail. The result is a custom travel experience designed personally for you."
