Enjoy a BBQ for the Troops on Saturday, July 18

July 16th, 2015 by

USO BBQ for the TroopsAt River View Ford, we support the men and women of the U.S. Military, and that’s why we’re proud to be hosting a BBQ for the Troops this Saturday, July 18, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. When you come to the BBQ for the Troops, you can enjoy a hotdog or a hamburger and donate to an excellent cause.

All donations made at the BBQ for the Troops will go straight to the USO of Illinois. Over the past two years, this even has raised $125,000 for local troops and their family, and we want to make this year’s even the best yet. To make that happen, we’ll need a big turnout — so come see us, enjoy lunch and a friendly atmosphere, and give what you can — every little bit helps.

What If I Can’t Make It?

Even if you can’t make it to our dealership this Saturday, you can still make a difference — we’ll be accepting donations in our service department throughout the month of July.

You can also support the cause over social media. In fact, if you share a video that’s 15 seconds or less about what you’re passionate about supporting local troops, you have a chance to win the Ultimate Backyard Barbecue, courtesy of Drive Chicago. If you win, the head chef from Real Urban Barbecue will come to your yard and make BBQ food for 50 of your friends — and you’ll meet a Chicago Blackhawks ambassador! Just be sure to label your entries with #BBQ4Troops.
