'Veterans Day' Weekend at Ivy to Benefit Homeless Shelter

Ivy Restaurant will host a Veterans' weekend to raise money for the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans in Wheaton.

Ivy Restaurant, 120 N. Main St. in downtown Wheaton will host a three-day Veterans Day event to honor veterans' service and raise money for the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans in Wheaton.

The Ivy chef and culinary staff will serve creative entrees and cocktails reminiscent of past eras veterans would appreciate, according to an announcement from the restaurant.

Ivy owner Dick O'Gorman said 10 percent of proceeds made this weekend will go to the shelter, and patrons can get a dog tag in return for their donations. 

"We've got a guy making $28 million a year sitting out the World Series because he's not good enough, then we've got a veteran outside taking cigarette butts out of the (ash tray) to smoke. The world is wrong—that's why we're doing it. Vets don't get treated well, so we're doing (these) three days" to honor them, he said.
