Our Current and Upcoming Events

We host events for you to attend and have a great time while raising money for an incredible cause:


Bowling for Veterans

Our original event.
First hosted in 2013 as a fun fundraiser with some local friends and businesses to raise money for Veterans in need of help. Back then we chose the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans as our beneficiary and the funds raised at this event have continued to support this great local non-profit ever since.

Save-A-Joe Pub Crawl

Every year we host a Pub Crawl as one of our Annual Events as another way to give our supporters and advocates a super fun way to help us raise money. What a great way to have fun, do good, and to be part of something so awesome!

Pig Gig Ride-n-Roast

Once a year we collaborate with IL Rolling Thunder Chapter 1, and the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association® Chapters 24-2 and 24-6 for a great event. We have a super, fun filled day for motorcycle enthusiasts and everyone else too! This is a fun filled day that starts with a motorcycle Poker Run in the morning, and an entire afternoon of live music, a Pig Roast, Raffles, Prizes and Giveaways too. Everyone is welcome!

Why we Do it!

We do this because we would be nowhere without our Veterans. They served so that we might enjoy the wonderful opportunities and lives that we have here in the great US of A.
