Chicago Cruise Another Success!

Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Chicago Cruise this year. Not only did we sell out the boat but with the additional Blackhawks Jersey Raffle, compliments of Adams Elevator, we raised some serious money for the foundation. Also congratulations to Glenn Duncan for winning the jersey!

Next year we will be looking for a new boat and we encourage everyone to get their tickets early as we actually had to turn people away. Once again, thank you to the sponsors and to the attendees. It was a blast and we look forward to doing it next year.
