Benefits of this competition to prosper the: Wounded Warrior Project

“To Honor and Empower Wounded Warriors”

Wounded Warrior Project


Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events.

WWP: Currently aiding over 34,201 alumni and family members

For WWP, there is a distinct difference between members and alumni; the term alumni indicates a mutual shared experience and denotes your place in an organization was earned. There are no dues here - those were paid by wearing the uniform and on the battlefield. 
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) takes a holistic approach when serving warriors and their families to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement. Through a high-touch and interactive approach, WWP hopes to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.

  • To raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members.
  • To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
  • To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.

Paulina_Market
Paulina Market
When Sigmund Lekan began making sausage and smoking meats at Paulina Market in 1949, Lincoln Avenue in West Lakeview was known as Germantown Chicago. Using recipes and traditions brought over from Old World European butcher shops, it gained a loyal following that has never left. In 1984, his sons moved the Market one block north to a new building. With four smoke-houses, an enlarged sausage kitchen, a bigger retail space and ample freezer rooms, Paulina is today one of Chicago's most iconic meat markets.
Westminster Hot Dog
Westminster Hot Dog
Chicago is well known for its hot dog stands and sausage shops, so we knew when we open Westminster Hot Dog that we needed to do something different. While we strive to keep the classics alive, we wanted to bring some new school tricks to compliment the deep-rooted Chicago traditions.

Westminster Hot Dog makes all of its sausages from scratch on-site daily. By hand making our sausages and sauces we are able to ensure we are only using the finest and freshest ingredients and cuts of meats. By striving for the highest quality product we can assure you that there are no preservatives, nitrates or fillers in our product.

As a local Chicago business we work to keep it all the in 'family' by only purchasing meats from Chicago area business owners like Red Hot Chicago (est. 1893) and Henry Kaminski Meats (est. 1956). Chicago is our city and sausage is what we do.
