This year, CARSTAR partnered with local country music station U.S. 99 to promote the drive, which began during the November Military Month. Donation bins were placed in all the participating shops along with a Fisher House Wish List. Cash donations exceeding $2,000 were raised along with 12 bins of food and much-needed supplies.

“The Hines Fisher House does so much every day for our veterans and their families,” said Louie Santiago, marketing specialist for the CARSTAR Chicagoland Business Group. “It’s an honor for us to be able to help out every chance we get.”

CARSTAR West-Hill refurbished a fully operational 1930s General Electric refrigerator, which was raffled off to raise $1,400 for the Fisher House. The refrigerator was given a Chicago Blackhawks theme. The majority of raffle tickets were sold at the CARSTAR West-Hill Christmas Party.
