The specially priced White Sox Ticket Package included a two-hour, all-you-can-eat buffet plus drinks (beer, wine and sodas). The $75 Package included a commemorative t-shirt with Fisher House and White Sox logos plus lower reserved seat tickets.

The bonus? Watching the White Sox win against the Detroit Tigers. A portion of each ticket helps support the FOFH-IL mission to help support Hines VA Fisher House.

Military Families Express Heartfelt Appreciation

Fisher House is a Godsend. So many of us want to be with our family members but can’t always afford it with the cost of travel, lodging and food. Thanks to Fisher House we can!

What a blessing! The Fisher House has relieved me of so much stress. Don’t know what I would have done.

This is such a great opportunity for families of veterans affected by war and illness. It warms my heart to see the government, community, families and those who serve out nation working together for the greater good.

The place is more than just a place to sleep. It’s just like your second home.

My grandmother and I stayed at the Fisher House to keep my father company during his long treatment/recovery… If not for this home, my father would have been a sad and lonely man.

…The Fisher House provides peace of mind for the patient as well as their family…the manager and staff are a true blessing…
