USO BBQ for the Troops

February 1, 2020

2019 CATA/USO BBQ for the Troops


This summer, join our mission of raising funds and awareness for the USO of Illinois to support local troops and their families, while driving some extra foot traffic into your dealership. On Saturday, July 13, CATA dealers throughout the area will fire up their grills to host a USO Barbecue for the Troops community fundraiser. This year marks the 7th consecutive year of the partnership and, since 2013, dealers have rallied together to help raise nearly $750,000 for the USO of Illinois. With your help, we can make 2019 bigger and better than ever.

Beginning early June, the CATA will publish and promote the full listing of participating dealers on and will run a market-wide advertising, public relations and social media campaign to drive traffic to participating dealerships on July 13.

A program Toolkit will be available to all participating dealers following the CATA Dealer Strategy Summit and "BBQ Boot Camp" held at the CATA on May 14. To join the mission – and the fun – contact the CATA at or
