BBQ for the troops: Initiative raises funds for military families

It's BBQ for a great cause.

Next month, the Chicago Automobile Trade Association and the USO of Illinois are partnering to host the fourth annual BBQ for the troops!

John Hennessy, CATA chairman, and Jeff Shapiro, owner of Real Urban BBQ, join Good Day Chicago to talk about their fundraising effort and what to expect from their mouth-watering event.

More than 70 dealers across Chicago will fire up their grills on July 16 in support of local military and their families...And so far you've raised almost 300 thousand dollars.
