By Steve Rhodes / Posted on October 23, 2018

Inbox, from phil@cfaevents:

"CFA Events has teamed up with businessman, television personality, philanthropist and Chicago's own Marcus Lemonis for a multi-year sponsorship of the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade. As part of the Camping World Holdings family, the leading outdoor and camping retailer, the title sponsorship will be held by Uncle Dan's Outdoor Store, a specialty retailer of outdoor gear, apparel and camping supplies.

"The Uncle Dan's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be broadcast live nationally on WGN America and in Chicagoland on WGN9."

Crain's:

"A lawsuit seeking class-action status accuses Camping World Holdings and certain company officials, including Chairman and CEO Marcus Lemonis, of misrepresenting the company's financials while they sold more than $530 million in Camping World shares."
