USO BBQ for the Troops Event Happening at Arlington Heights Ford

Once again, Arlington Heights Ford is rallying all Schaumburg and Arlington Heights drivers to help raise funds for a great cause. Let's fire up our grills on Saturday, July 14, 2018 to support the USO of Illinois and local troops. Arlington Heights Ford is one of many dealerships that partnered with the Chicago Automobile Trade Association to help raise awareness and funds for local troops and their families through a BBQ for the Troops fundraising event. Be sure to head down to the dealership to help us support the men and women who fight every day for our freedom.


Event Details

Time: 10AM-4PM

Where: 801 W Dundee Road Arlington Heights, IL 60004

Bring the family to have a great time at one of the many events, including dunk tank, raffles, kids' games, prizes, silent auction, and so much more. We will donate 100% of the proceeds to support troops both deployed and at home. Last year, we raised over $6,000, and we'd love to do it again-but we'd love to raise more.


In addition to the BBQ for the Troops, be sure to check us out on social media. We, along with other participating dealers, will be running social media contests where fans can nominate a military member or veteran they believe deserves the Ultimate Backyard BBQ. One lucky winner and 50 of their friends will receive the Ultimate Backyard BBQ, which will include a personal cooking demonstration and the chance to meet a Chicago Blackhawks player ambassador. It's just a small way we can say thank you to someone who has given so much for the rest of our community, so let's all rally together and show them all our support.
