CHICAGO, Ill. (March 4, 2013) – The Chicago Fire Soccer Club will host the 15th Annual Season Kickoff Luncheon on Tuesday, March 5 at 11:00 a.m. CT at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Long-time U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati will deliver the keynote address and help kickoff the Fire’s 16th season.

The Chicago Fire Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps the Chicago Fire contribute to the community through grants and contributions. In 2012, the Chicago Fire Foundation hosted its largest luncheon to date, with a sellout crowd of nearly 800 people raising more than $80,000 benefiting soccer and education programs for underprivileged Chicagoland youths.
 
The annual event offers Fire supporters the first opportunity to meet the 2013 Chicago Fire team and raise funds in the name of charity. In addition to interacting with Fire players, coaches and technical staff, the event includes a reception, formal lunch and silent auction where attendees can bid on autographed Fire and other sports memorabilia, gift certificates and much more. All proceeds benefit the Fire Foundation.
