2012 Recap & 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party December 30 2012
Our 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party was a huge success and a great way to end the 2012 season! We had such a great turnout - the bar was packed, the bowling lanes were full as hundreds of our friends, family and complete strangers gathered wearing their ugliest and tackiest Christmas sweaters to have a great time and raise money for StandUp2Cancer. We're proud to say that with the help of over 20 local businesses and all those in attendance, we generated over $800 worth of raffle prizes and over $500 in cash donations!
Thank you so much to all of our customers and business partners that helped make 2012 another record year! Without you all, we'd just be three guys in a warehouse filled with wool, cotton and synthetic blend materials - THANK YOU!
We wish you all the best in 2013!
Team Ugly - Adam, Brian & Kevin
We really appreciate the help from our friends and local Crown Point, Indiana businesses that generously provided gifts towards our fundraiser - Thank you very much!

Out with the Old, In with the New July 26 2011
Last season the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party website enjoyed huge growth, as media outlets like CNN, MSNBC and newspaper websites across the county covered this slightly new and very popular holiday tradition.
My goal over the next few months is to travel near and far to gather up a fresh batch of Ugly Christmas Sweaters; featuring the most awful designs, patterns, actual Christmas tree lights that light up, etc.
If you happen to still have your ugly sweater from this past holiday season and you'd like to advertise it on my site, please feel free to contact me, using the links below.

The Launch of Ugly Christmas Sweater Party July 26 2011
Well, I'm not at the "perfect" stage, but "good enough" is okay for now.
My main concern is getting the word out that there is a site dedicated to Ugly Christmas Sweaters and of course the parties that we all love to show up to wearing our Sunday's worst.
So what do you think? Can a site created for buyers and sellers of ugly Christmas sweaters actually work? I hope so....how hillarious would it be if this thing took off??
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
