As many of you may recall, the Chicago Fire’s very own Gonzalo Segares was recognized as one of three Modern Hispanic Gentlemen last year for his charitable efforts and work in the community.
The honor has now presented him with an opportunity to continue the positive work by potentially helping him earn an additional $5,000 for the Chicago Fire Foundation.
But he needs your help.
Between now and August 8, you can show your support for Gonzalo and the Foundation by voting online.
Every vote will get him closer to the $5,000, which would be used to support the many community-based initiatives and youth programs offered by the Foundation, including the P.L.A.Y.S. Program, Premier Skills and more.

Select shots from the Fire's 3-1 win over the Silverbacks.
It had been a long-time coming and put off a bit by Gonzalo Segares' ankle injury earlier this season but the Costa Rican's appearance in the Fire's 1-1 draw at Sporting KC had a ring of history to it.
With the 90 minute shift, Segares played his 216th regular season game for the club, moving him past goalkeeper Zach Thornton for third all-time on the club's MLS regular season appearance list, joining current Fire assistant coach CJ Brown (1st, 296) and teammate Logan Pause (2nd, 279).
Fire kitman Charles Raycroft worked a little magic and made the trio these jerseys to commemorate the occasion...
Congrats to Gonzalo on joining the club and thanks to all three of you for your 791 regular season matches and 35 years of combined service to the Fire!
