Hometown Hero


The Chicago Wolves are proud to honor our Hometown Heroes, presented by Vitalant, and are accepting nominations for the 2020-21 season.


As COVID-19 has transformed the ways we must live and work and thrive, it has become clear the Chicago area boasts so many people who deserve to be recognized as Hometown Heroes.

If you wake up each day knowing you’re needed at work in order to save lives – or to protect and sustain our society as we battle the novel coronavirus – then you’re a Hometown Hero and the Chicago Wolves want to reward your persistent efforts on everyone’s behalf.

Every Hometown Hero deserves our appreciation and gratitude, and the Wolves are providing that opportunity all summer and throughout the upcoming 2020-21 season.

If you know someone who has gone above and beyond to serve our community, tell us their story using the form below.

The Wolves will reward nominees by sharing their stories on social media, providing tickets to games during the 2020-21 season and offering the chance to join Wayne Messmer on the ice for a moment in the spotlight during the National Anthem.

You can also help support our Hometown Heroes with a donation of whole blood at a Vitalant Blood Center. Visit Vitalant.org for more information.
