Rasoolullah Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam has said: There is no obedience to creation if this means disobeying the Creator.
From the above-mentioned we may conclude that to commit a sinful act to please others, which directly displeases Allah must be avoided.
By attending this non-Islamic event, you may be pleasing your in-laws and your sister in law, but if the Creator is displeased then our actions will be held accountable. After all, we live to please him and nobody else. The tradition must be broken once. Thereafter, they will get use to it. It's always the first step which is very hard but then through Allahs help, the path becomes easier to follow.
You must not attend this function, especially in the circumstances mentioned.
Allah knows best.
