2023 USO BBQ for the Troops

Raymond Chevrolet Kia


New-car dealers in the Chicagoland area are on a mission to raise awareness and funds for local military and their families. For the tenth consecutive year, the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) and its dealer members have partnered with the USO of Illinois to host “Barbecue for the Troops” community fundraising events on Saturday, July 15th.

Over the past ten years, CATA dealers have rallied their communities to help raise over $1,000,000 to support USO of Illinois programs and services. 

Every dollar you raise will help your local USO provide services and support for the 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 15th 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.

All dealerships will be abiding by their community health and safety guidelines.
