For the past nine years, Chicagoland’s new-car dealers have led the charge in supporting hometown heroes by hosting Barbeque for the Troops community fundraisers for USO Illinois. Since the program’s inception in 2013, dealers have raised more than $950,000 for local military and their families. With a big milestone in sight, help us make it to $1 million for 2022.

Dealers throughout the Chicagoland area are rallying their communities to say thank you to those who have been serving on the home front and frontlines around the world. 100% of donations go to the USO Illinois so show your support and visit a participating dealer on July 16th or throughout the month of July.

Participating dealers and the USO Illinois are also giving people the opportunity to nominate someone deserving of the Ultimate At-Home BBQ via a social media contest. Visit Facebook.com/DriveChicago to enter through August 1, 2022. Winner will receive a gift card to a local BBQ restaurant, at-home grilling essentials (apron & grilling set) and more.
