"The staff at Arnie Bauer is excited to put on this great event every year, and we look forward to bringing the community together to support the USO of Illinois to honor local military service members," said Alyssa Gomez, Sales Manager at Arnie Bauer.
The USO of Illinois’ mission is to enhance the quality of life and lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families through local programs and centers in appreciation of their service and sacrifice. In 2014, they served more than 330,000 military and their families and escorted 57 Families of the Fallen through our airports. The USO has hosted many events throughout the year that help raise funding & awareness about USO programs, provide entertainment & give back to military and their families throughout Illinois.
The Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) has been a leading BBQ partner with the USO of Illinois, as they enlist their dealership members to host BBQs on July 18th to raise awareness and funds for local troops and their families. Already, more than 50 dealerships representing more than 35 communities across Chicagoland will fire up the grill and collect donations to support the USO of Illinois. Proceeds raised will support troops deployed and at home, military families, wounded, ill and injured troops as well as families of the fallen.
For those who cannot attend on Saturday, Arnie Bauer has created an online donation page via Crowdrise here: http://bit.ly/1IMLYt3. Donors do not have to set up an account to donate, and all funds will be paid directly from Crowdrise to USO of Illinois.
