Sandy's Lighthouse Perfect Weekend Guide

Looking for something special to do this weekend?
The weather is to be perfect this weekend. If you are looking for something to do outdoors with your family, other half or the best company I know...yourself-there is two events I think are worth checking out.
Saturday, July 20th-Chicagoland Automobile Trade Assoc. hosting USO BBQ for the TROOPS
On a mission to raise awareness and funds for local troops and their families, the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) has enlisted its dealership members to host a USO Barbecue for the Troops fundraising event on Saturday, July 20. More than 50 dealerships representing more than 35 communities across Chicagoland will fire up the grill, offer "free" services, such as car washes, and collect donations to support the USO of Illinois. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised will support troops deployed and at home; military families; wounded, ill and injured troops as well as families of the fallen.
