Service members and their guests will enjoy a buffet dinner, receive Bulls merchandise and meet with legendary Bulls alumni. By teaming with USO Illinois and the Chicago Bulls, we are able to show our gratitude for these brave men and women that have sacrificed so much for our country. We want to thank them for their extraordinary service and welcome them home with a chance to relax and spend time with their loved ones at the game, said Dave Fine, vice president and general manager of AT&T Illinois & Wisconsin.
