In Illinois, the Chicago Automobile Trade Association has been a leading BBQ partner with the USO of Illinois as they enlist their dealership members to host BBQs on July 19th 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, offer “free” services, such as car washes, and collect donations to support the USO of Illinois. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised will support troops deployed and at home; military families; wounded, ill and injured troops as well as families of the fallen.
Join one of your local new-car dealers on July 19th for a day of great food and fun to help support local service members and military families who need it the most. Visit DriveChicago.com for a full listing of participating new car dealers.
