Operation Shining Star – U.S. Secret Service Chicago Field Office’s

Fundraising Arm – Raises $15,000 for Support Of Hines VA Fisher House

2012 Golf Outing event and Silent Auction completely organized and executed by Secret Service associates proves most successful to date.

For a second consecutive year, Friends of Fisher House – IL, Inc. thanks the United States Secret Service Chicago Field Office Operation Shining Star for its enthusiastic assistance and generosity.

The hard work of our enthusiastic Secret Service friends is benefitting the deserving causes of the 100 Club of Chicago, Comers Children’s Hospital and Friends of Fisher House-Illinois.

We are thrilled and honored to have Chicago agent Brett Colvin who, as an invaluable Board Director, is actively involved in spearheading FOFH-IL fundraising efforts.

In recognition of this generous donation supporting the Friends of Fisher House mission, the FOFH-IL Board is pleased to once again designate the U.S. Secret Service Chicago Field Office an official Patron of our organization.

Efforts such as theirs make year-round free lodging a blessed reality for military families in Illinois & from 34 states throughout the U.S. during medical crises when they need it most.

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
