Dozens of barbeques around the Chicago area Saturday raised money for the men and women serving in the United States military.

The Chicago Automobile Trade Association is hosting a USA Barbeque for the Troops.

Nearly 70 car dealerships across the Chicago area fired up their grills and offered customers food and special services like car washes for donations supporting the USO of Illinois.

Organizers say they hope to turn the barbeque into an annual event. They say next year they want 100 dealerships to take part.
