USO BBQ for the Troops Raises $5,176 for USO Illinois
Raymond Chevrolet Kia hosted the USO BBQ for the Troops on Saturday, July 15th. Partnering with the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) and USO of Illinois, we enjoyed a fun afternoon filled with games, food, cool cars, and more! The USO Barbecue for the Troops serves as a powerful platform to unite communities across the nation. Local businesses, volunteers, and residents come together to organize and participate in these events. In particular, we enjoyed food grilled by The Lodge of Antioch. However, that’s not all!
All proceeds directly benefit the USO of Illinois. This year, we raised an incredible $5,176! Thank you to everyone who donated and came out to support this amazing cause!
