Because the lifesaving blood you donate at this premier event will be given to hospital patients in Chicago and beyond, you’ll motor away from the exhibition as a champion. So come on out and experience the latest in vehicle excitement and help us ensure there’s enough blood in Illinois for the patients who need it.

About Dennis Buckley: For many years, Buckley helped lead the auto show and was the driving force behind its blood drives. After his 2004 passing from cancer, the drive was named in his honor.
