About the Event

About the 2022 100BMC Toy Drive

Join the 100 Black Men of Chicago, Inc. (100BMC) for a night of music, dancing and fun to celebrate the holiday season, as we strive to assist those who are less fortunate. This year, we will have Simone Green performing live. We will also have an old school vs. new school battle of the DJs with DJ JustOne and DJ John Young that will keep you dancing all night. Tickets include complimentary beverages by Molson Coors Beverage Company and Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey, until exhausted. Food will be available for purchase at the concession stand on the first floor.

You must be at least 21 or older to attend. No tickets will be sold at the door.

Bags may be searched at the discretion of Soldier Field and must adhere to the Soldier Field Bag Policy. No exceptions. Only the following bags are allowed:

    • Bags that are clear plastic and do not exceed 12″x6″x12″
    • Small clutch bags, which cannot exceed 4.5″ x 6.5″ in size, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bags

The 100BMC Toy Drive collects thousands of dollars in toys and gift donations. Funds raised to support this act of community kindness and engagement are used to purchase additional gifts and personal necessities for women and children in homeless shelters, community outreach organizations, and health centers in an effort to make the holiday season brighter for children and families experiencing a difficult period in their lives.

Sponsors include: Molson Coors Beverage Company, Walmart, CIBC, Enterprise, BCBS of Illinois, FedEx, McDonald’s, Country Financial, Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey and The Chicago Community Trust.
