Brilliance Honda to Host USO Barbecue for the Troops on Saturday, July 19th

The Crystal Lake Honda dealer will be donating $25 for every test drive at the community fundraising event.

PRLog - July 16, 2014 - CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. -- Chicagoland auto dealers like Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake are on a mission to raise both funds and awareness for local troops and their families. This is the second year that the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) and its dealers have teamed up with the USO of Illinois to host a USO cookout for the troops. Brilliance Honda's event is just one of over 60 fundraising endeavors that not only make for a great summer afternoon, but strengthen and bring together area communities.

On Saturday, July 19th, Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake will be firing up the grills at 11:00 a.m. and play host, providing fun and friendship for kids and adults of all ages. 100% of the proceeds from the event will go towards supporting our nation's troops and their loved ones.

Promotions will vary from dealership to dealership, but at Brilliance Honda, the dealership will donate $25 for every test drive taken, up to a maximum of $2,000 going toward the USO. The dealership will also be accepting individual donations during the barbecue for any residents who want to chip in.

“Last year’s partnership with the CATA was a huge success, raising $37,500 worth of funds that were used to provide programming for local military and their families. We saw firsthand just how much of a positive impact local Chicagoland dealers have in their communities and are overwhelmed by the response we have had this year by returning and new dealerships,” stated Alison Ruble, president and CEO of the USO of Illinois.

The barbecue lasts until 2:00 PM, but even after the grills are shut off and everyone has gone home, Brilliance Honda will remain a go-between for any Chicagoans looking to donate time or funds to the USO.

Readers who cannot attend can still support the USO through July 21st with Brilliance Honda. Fans can submit photos or videos with the hashtag #BBQ4Troops on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to be entered to win prizes like a barbecue basket containing a gift card, barbecue sauces, dry rubs, flavored wood chips, a t-shirt, and other barbecue accessories from Real Urban BBQ.
