Dine at Heroes West on Jan. 31 and benefit the
Will County Children's Advocacy Center

 

JOLIET – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow will visit Heroes West Sports Grill during the lunch hour on Monday, Jan. 31, where he expects to enjoy a great meal that will benefit the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center.

Heroes West is hosting its Heroes Helps event on that day during which 10 percent of the sales generated by participating diners will be donated to the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center.

 

Heroes Helps is open to the entire community, and diners only need to inform their server that they wish for their meal to benefit the Children’s Advocacy Center. In addition, all participating guests will be entered in a drawing, and one lucky winner will receive a $25 Heroes West gift card.

 

State’s Attorney Glasgow and members of his staff will be at Heroes West during the lunch hour on Jan. 31 to say hello to patrons and to thank participating diners for their support.

 

The Will County Children’s Advocacy Center provides a safe haven where children who have suffered sexual abuse or severe physical abuse can tell their stories to trained professionals in a non-threatening, non-suggestive environment. Their videotaped statements have been used to prosecute hundreds of child predators over the past 16 years.

 

“The not-for-profit Will County Children’s Advocacy Center depends on fund raisers like Heroes Helps to enable its dedicated staff to continue its critical mission of keeping our children safe,” said State’s Attorney Glasgow, who founded the Center in 1995.  “Heroes West allows the community to support the Center and have some fun in the process.”

 

Heroes West Sports Grill is open from 11 a.m. to midnight and is located at 1530 Commerce Lane in Joliet at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Houbolt Road.

 

The Will County Children’s Advocacy Center is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization. The center relies on grants, local funding, foundations and fund raisers to operate. The center also is a member of United Way of Will County.
