OSWEGO, Ill. - July 14, 2015 - PRLog -- The team at River View Ford in Oswego, IL is proud to stand with the men and women of the United States Military, and they’re showing their commitment this Saturday, July 18, by hosting the BBQ for the Troops. The event will take place from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Lunch will be provided, donations will be accepted, and all are welcome.

The BBQ for the troops will be taking place at auto dealerships throughout Chicagoland, with each event raising money for the USO of Illinois. This event has only been held for the past two years, but has already managed to raise $125,000 for local troops and their families. This year’s BBQ for the troops is poised to the best ever, but it will take the community’s support to make it a success. Everyone is invited to come to the event, enjoy a hotdog or hamburger, and help in any way they can.

Community members don’t need to limit their support to the main event, though. Throughout July, River View Ford will be accepting donations in their service department. Every little bit helps, and it will all go to the USO of Illinois.

Locals are also encouraged to show their support through social media. Those who share a video that’s 15 seconds or less about why they’re passionate about supporting local troops could win the Ultimate Backyard Barbecue, courtesy of Drive Chicago. The Ultimate Backyard Barbecue will bring the head chef from Real Urban Barbecue to one lucky winner’s yard, providing top-notch BBQ food for 50 of their friends — along with the opportunity to meet a Chicago Blackhawks ambassador! Competitors should be sure to label their entries with #BBQ4Troops.

The team at River View Ford is delighted to be able to help the troops in any way they can, and they’re hoping for a big turnout this Saturday. For more information, call 888-994-1003 or visit the dealership at 2200 US 30 in Oswego, IL.
