The Chicago Wolves and Turtle Wax are teaming up to show their appreciation for Chicago-area first responders on April 15, 2017.

Leading officials in the Chicago Wolves and Turtle Wax organizations hold the work of first responders and the 100 Club of Chicago in high regard. Turtle Wax co-chairman Denis and Sondra Healy have supported the 100 Club of Chicago for the last 29 years — and Denis Healy serves as the organization’s executive board vice president.

“Sondra and I are proud to be long-time supporters of the 100 Club,” Denis Healy said. “This year we are thrilled to partner with the Chicago Wolves to create a program that benefits this incredible group of men and women who have done so much to protect the Chicagoland community.”

Count Chicago Wolves senior executive vice president Wayne Messmer among those who have benefited from first responders’ expertise. When Messmer was shot in the throat during a robbery attempt on Chicago’s near west side in the early morning on April 9, 1994, the Chicago Fire Department’s Henry Hugel and Bill Steiner rushed to his aid.

“Without the incredible work of first responders Bill and Henry, it is possible that I would not be here today,” Messmer said. “The sacrifices made by first responders are invaluable. We’re honored to host them and their families at the arena in April and hope fans, friends and the community will join us in retweeting for this great cause.”
