During the last 25 years we have donated almost $750,000 to different charities in the Chicago land area.
All money raised is donated in its entirety to charity. The two primary beneficiaries include the Loyola University Burn Center and the Schaumburg Township Food Pantry.
Each year, members of IAFF Local 4092, host a one day Charity Softball Event. This event raises approximately $40,000 for several local charities. This impressive achievement is only made possible through the many contributions from businesses, individuals, and 33 other Locals that take part in the event.

The event takes place on the second saturday after Labor Day. First Round Match-ups begin at 8:30 am at Campanelli Park and 9:00 am at Olympic Park. The day is also accompanied by food, raffles, and a silent auction. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to join the festivities. Feel free to contact the Local to see if there is room for your team to play or if you or your business would like to become a sponsor.
Donations of any products, services or gift certificates would be used as silent auction or raffle prizes and would help us achieve our goal of $40,000 for this year. Donations exceeding $400 will have the company logo displayed on the back of the official softball T-shirts. The deadlines for these donations will be Aug 31st.
