THE STORY:

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 16th to raise awareness and funds for local troops and their families. Already, more than 60 dealerships representing more than 35 communities across Chicagoland will fire up the grill and collect donations to support the USO of Illinois. 100% 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. On Saturday, July 16th join us here at Wickstrom Auto Group for a day of great food and fun to help support local service members and military families who need it the most. There will be BBQing, free rides on our 4x4 Off-Road Track, free car washes, raffle for sporting events and more!! We hope you will stop by that day for some fun and to give back to our Troops and their families!! Wickstrom Auto Group WILL BE MATCHING ALL DONATIONS received from this page and at our dealership on July 16th. We hope to see you there.
