      The Chicagoland Mustang Club, Chicago's premier Mustang Club, spreading across all of Chicago and its suburbs, began in September 2004 as a club for like-minded Mustang enthusiasts. With the area lacking a Mustang club that was not generational or model-specific, the Chicagoland Mustang Club, (CMC) opened to bring together Mustang owners of all generations and model ownership.

      CMC has since grown from one person to well over 2,000 members and touts sponsorships from leading Mustang High Performance shops and Mustang parts manufacturers. We host meet-and-greet days at local restaurants around Chicago, as well as club days at local drag strips. Past events have included dyno days, HUGE car shows, sunset cruises downtown and cruises to Starved Rock State Park. The Chicagoland Mustang Club also gives back to the community, hosting fundraisers for families in need, Children's Memorial Hospital, and participating in Toys for Tots.




      For those of you who saw the earlier save the date thread, we ended up pushing this event to the following weekend. We did this for good reason!

      For this event, we will be organizing a pre-meet beforehand so we can arrive to McHenry Drive-In as a group. We will meet for an early dinner and then leave for a short cruise to the theater. Below are all of the details:

      CMC's Season Opener will again be held in the Cozzi Corner parking lot in Downers Grove (same location as last year). Bring your Mustangs, bring your family/friends, and pack TOYS to donate! This will be an event you do NOT want to miss.

      As in the past, the biggest part of this event is the 7th Annual CMC TOY DRIVE to benefit the kids at Advocate Hope Children's Hospital of Oak Lawn. If you know CMC, you know that we are all about charity and helping out those less fortunate than us. The Chicagoland Mustang Club wants to bring a smile to the faces of kids that could really use something to smile about. Everyone who brings a NEW TOY to donate will be entered into a drawing to receive prizes donated by our sponsors and other companies we have found looking to help. When you first pull into the lot a section coordinator will show you where to park and help guide you into your space. Once complete, you can grab your donations and head over to the tent we will have setup to drop off your toys and get your FREE tickets to the raffle.

      This year we plan to fill a pack of Mustangs, from top to bottom, and deliver all of the toys collected at the opener to Advocate Hope Children's Hospital of Oak Lawn the day after the event. We will setup a cruise thread to load up and bring toys over to the hospital in typical CMC fashion! More details to follow. This is a great way for us to give back to our community. Please read their DonationGuidelines.pdf by clicking the link. It is important, as they can only accept NEW TOYS and have rules on what they can take as a donation (i.e. no stuffed animals, etc). Thanks in advance! As always, we hope to make an even larger donation this year thanks to all of the wonderful contributions from our members and staff.
