Wolves’ First Responders Night Set for April 15


February 21, 2017

The Chicago Wolves and Turtle Wax have partnered again to aid Chicago-area first responders and the 100 Club of Chicago.

The Wolves’ American Hockey League regular-season finale on Saturday, April 15,turtlewax-100Club will be First Responders Night. Turtle Wax will provide 2,000 tickets to local emergency responders and their families as a measure of gratitude for their tireless work in our communities.

Long before that night’s game, however, Turtle Wax hopes to donate $25,000 to the 100 Club of Chicago, a civilian organization that provides for the families of first responders in Cook County and Lake County who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Turtle Wax already has pledged $20,000 to kickstart this year’s fundraising campaign.

Turtle Wax and the Wolves are encouraging the community to aid the 100 Club by supporting the Chicago Fire and Police hockey tournament on March 8-10 at Edge Ice Arena in Bensenville. All proceeds from this competitive tournament will go to the 100 Club. In addition, those who attend the tournament can contribute to the 100 Club by participating in raffles or making donations at the Turtle Wax booth in the arena.

“As a 30-year supporter of the 100 Club of Chicago, I have seen how these incredible first responders risk their lives so that we can be safe and secure in our homes, workplaces and communities,” said Turtle Wax co-chairman Denis Healy, who’s also the 100 Club’s executive board vice president. “We are thankful to the entire Chicago Wolves organization and their fans for their continued partnership in this important fundraising endeavor.”

The Wolves have been strong supporters of first responders virtually from the moment the franchise was founded in January 1994. On April 9 of that year, Wolves senior executive vice president Wayne Messmer was shot in the throat during a failed robbery attempt in Chicago. Henry Hugel and Bill Steiner, two Chicago Fire Department first responders, were the first to rush to his aid. Messmer refers to them as the men who saved his life.

“It was their calmness more than anything else that I’ll remember,” Messmer said in an interview with DNAInfo.com. “There’s no question whatsoever, had I not been attended, I would have been out. Dead. Intervention was life-saving in my situation.”
