"As a 30-year supporter of the 100 Club of Chicago, I have seen how these incredible first responders risk their lives so that we can be safe and secure in our homes, workplaces and communities. The money we raise helps provide for the families of first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty." said Denis Healy, co-chairman, Turtle Wax and executive board vice president, 100 Club of Chicago. "We are thankful to the entire Chicago Wolves organization and their fans for their continued partnership in this important fundraising endeavor."
To kick-off the campaign and help reach the program goal of raising $25,000 for the 100 Club of Chicago, Turtle Wax has pledged $20,000 to the cause. The brand and the Chicago Wolves are asking the community to help aid in this noble cause by supporting the Chicago Fire and Police Hockey Tournament at The Edge Ice Arena in Bensenville from March 8-10, 2017.
Tournament attendees can make contributions to the 100 Club onsite by participating in raffles or donating directly at the Turtle Wax booth at the arena. For information on the tournament, visit: Facebook.com/PoliceFireHockey.
