Wayne Messmer Honors First Responders

The Chicago Wolves will wear specially designed first responders jerseys during their games on Saturday, Sunday and Jan. 17 at Allstate Arena to raise money for the 100 Club of Chicago, the 5-11 Club, and Chicago Wolves Charities. Wayne Messmer, Wolves senior executive vice president, will have a jersey in honor of the first responders who helped save his life after he was shot on the Near West Side in 1994.
