Dine at Heroes West on Aug. 10 and benefit the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center

July 24

JOLIET – Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow announced that anyone who dines at Heroes West Sports Grill on Monday Aug. 10 can help out the Will County Children’s Advocacy Center.

Heroes West is hosting a 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. 

Participants may either dine in or carry out for their order to qualify. In addition, all participating guests will be entered in a drawing, and one lucky winner will receive a $100 Heroes West gift card.

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

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 in the prosecution of hundreds of sexual predators over the past 14 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. “Thanks to Heroes West owner Joe Pecora for his generous assistance. And I want to invite everyone to come out for a great meal at his legendary local restaurant.”

Other worthy organizations have been the beneficiary of the Heroes Helps promotion. At the end of the year, the organization that raises the most money also will receive a $1,000 donation.

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 and fulfill its critical mission of protecting children. The center also is a member of United Way of Will County and United Way of Grundy County.
