Burger bar 25 Degrees (736 N. Clark) hosted a heated — and not to mention tasty — competition July 23 to benefit the 100 Club of Chicago. More than 450 guests turned out for the fourth annual Pig-Out for Charity event, where members of the 3rd, 7th, 18th and 19th district police forces faced off to see who could take down more burgers. Supporters got in on the action, chowing down on sliders and sipping cocktails. The Chicago Players, an 11-piece band, played classic and modern hits while the stars of NBC’s “Chicago Fire” greeted guests, including 100 Club of Chicago CEO Joe Ahern. Proceeds from the event will benefit the organization, which supports the families of police officers, firefighters and paramedics who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
Splash was the media sponsor of this event.
