Diners won’t be the only ones to benefit from a night of cocktails and dining at one of Michigan City’s newest restaurants on Thursday, August 10th.

Calling itself a “social kitchen and drinkery,” 100 Washington is one of Michigan City’s newest restaurants. The historic lakefront train depot has had a stylish makeover, offering guests sweeping views and al fresco dining. Wishing to give back to the dunes community, owner Jason Gatzka has pledged a portion of the evening’s proceeds to benefit Dunes Learning Center.

The nonprofit National Park Service education partner provides hands-on learning experiences in nature to more than 14,000 school children each year. Many pay reduced rates, made possible by fundraising efforts like next week’s Give Back dinner, says executive director, Geof Benson.

The restaurant is located at 100 Washington St., in Michigan City. Reservations are not required. All meal and beverage purchases made during the dinner service on August 10th will benefit Dunes Learning Center.


One of 17 National Park Service education partners, Dunes Learning Center provides year-round, standards-based, environmental education programs for learners of all ages—inspiring curiosity, scientific literacy, environmental stewardship and civic engagement. Located within Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, the campus occupies 63 acres of rolling woodland at the southern tip of Lake Michigan and is located less than an hour from Chicago.
