We all have one… an ugly sweater. And now, you have a chance to get paid when you dress your worst for the holidays! Get wrapped up in the pop culture celebration that is the Ugly Sweater Party at Grand Casino Mille Lacs on Saturday, December 10. $10,000 is the top prize for the ugliest sweater at this year’s holiday event.
The hilarity continues through the night as The Dan Band provides entertainment beginning at 8 p.m. A live DJ will perform before and after the show. This event is free and open to the public. Each Guest wanting to enter the ugly sweater contest must be a Grand Rewards member. Grand Rewards membership is free and easily obtainable at any Grand Rewards counter.

About The Dan Band

Dan Finnerty from The Dan Band is best known for performing the now-infamous rendition of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” in the box office smash Old School, as well as appearing as the sleazy bat-mitzvah singers in Starsky & Hutch and most recently as the wedding singers in the popular film The Hangover.

The Dan Band plays to sold-out crowds from Los Angeles to New York and has appeared on numerous television shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, Ellen, The Late Late Show, and Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards. The band eventually caught the attention of Steven Spielberg, who signed on to executive produce Dan’s one-hour concert special, “The Dan Band: I Am Woman.”
