First Responders Night, presented by Turtle Wax


The Chicago Wolves and Turtle Wax are teaming up to show their appreciation for Chicago-area first responders on Sunday, April 15, at Allstate Arena during the Wolves’ final regular-season game of the year.

On Jan. 20-21, the Wolves wore commemorative First Responders jerseys during their games at Allstate Arena to raise funds for the 100 Club of Chicago and Chicago Wolves Charities. To celebrate the success of the First Responders Jersey auctions and raffles, there will be an on-ice check presentation to the 100 Club of Chicago on April 15 with many first responders in attendance.

The Wolves will host a Touch-A-Truck event from 2:30 to 4 p.m. in Allstate Arena’s South parking lot. Children (and their parents) will have the opportunity to explore police, fire, and EMS vehicles while getting to meet local first responders. The event is hosted by the Village of Rosemont and presented by Turtle Wax.  All fans with a game ticket are welcome to attend.

The first 2,500 fans who enter Allstate Arena on April 15 will receive a Skates Car Window Plush, courtesy of Turtle Wax. To purchase your tickets or receive more information, please contact the Chicago Wolves at 1-800-THE-WOLVES.


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 30 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 for this great cause.”
