This year our committee selected three charities to benefit our first responders and service men and women. The charities are:

Chicago Police Memorial Foundation

The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring the lives of our fallen heroes. The Foundation provides support and assistance to the families of Chicago police officers who are killed or catastrophically injured in the line of duty.

Ignite the Spirit

Ignite the Spirit is an ongoing charity that was created to raise funds for Chicago's firefighters, paramedics, and their families in a time of need.


SALUTE, INC. is dedicated to meeting the financial, physical, and emotional needs of injured military service members, veterans, and their families.
