The BBQs will be held July 15 at more than 100 car dealerships across the Chicago area. The event raises money for the USO.
Ray Scarpelli, Chicago Automobile Trade Association, and Alison Ruble, president and CEO of USO of Illinois, talked to ABC7 from the United Center where a kick-off was held Wednesday.
The USO of Illinois supports over 318,000 military members and their families.
