FIRST RESPONDERS NIGHT, PRESENTED BY TURTLE WAX, SET FOR APRIL 16


February 9, 2016

RETWEET @TURTLEWAX’S #TurtleWaxCARes TO RAISE $25,000 FOR 100 CLUB OF CHICAGO

The Chicago Wolves and Turtle Wax are teaming up to show their appreciation for Chicago-area first responders. In addition to proclaiming the team’s regular-season finale on Saturday, April 16, as First Responders Night, the Wolves and Turtle Wax are on a mission to support first responders and their families via an interactive social media campaign.

Turtle Wax has made it easy for fans to earn a $25,000 donation to the 100 Club of Chicago, a civilian organization that provides for the families of first responders in Cook and Lake County who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Simply visit the @TurtleWax account on Twitter and retweet the pinned message at the top that reads, “If this tweet reaches 2,000 retweets before April 16, we’ll donate $25,000 to the @Chicago100Club #TurtleWaxCARes.”

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.”
