10th Annual SAME Boat Cruise
Benefits Veterans & Military Families

SAME’s Chicago and Lake Michigan Posts invite you to a end our 10th Annual Boat Cruise Fundraiser to Benefit Veterans and Military Families Support Organizations. This two‐hour cruise on the Chicago River and Lake Michigan is an enjoyable way to spend a summer evening with fellow SAME members and guests, as well as to learn about and support local and national service organizations.

We are continuing our collaboration with Friends of Fisher House‐Hines VA, as a founding member. In addition, proceeds from the Cruise will be placed in a revolving fund to support veterans and military families support organizations. Since our 1st Cruise in 2007, we have raised over $25,000 and supported a diverse group of worthy organizations.

Over 7,400 Military Families Have Stayed Free of Charge at This "Home Away from Home" Since March 1, 2010

FOFH-IL is grateful to Harry Theodore, FOFH-IL Vice President – Media Relations, who has from "day-one" (July 2008) donated his time, talent and materials to photographically record all FOFH-IL and numerous Hines VA Fisher House events for sharing with supporters.

Military Families Express Thanks

When asked ‘where do you want to go on vacation?’

I thought…and thought and answered:

Hines Fisher House!

Not for the fun and games
which were great but for the camaraderie – mutual trust
and friendship among people
who spend a lot of time

Thank You…
You have left a footprint on my heart
