Chicago Police Chaplains Ministry Fundraiser at Allstate Arena

March 17, 2022

Police chaplain Reverend Dan Brandt will receive a Chicago Wolves Hometown Hero award on April 9

For over forty years, the Chicago Police Department’s Chaplains Ministry has provided invaluable services to police officers serving residents of the City of Chicago.

A staff of six, their names and faces are familiar to officers. To know a chaplain with the Chaplains Ministry is to know the depth of faith, loyalty and love which lay behind their work. In the four decades the Ministry has been in existence, the chaplains who tend to officers have unwaveringly escorted officers through both professional and personal difficulties a complex life so plentifully presents. Guided by the highest motives, the chaplains support officers as they cope with a changing world in ways which are faithful, graceful, and healing.

The chaplains are special human beings who, in times of joy or misfortune, perform countless acts of decency and kindness and bring rescue to officers and their families who are suffering hardship and need encouragement. Though many of those acts of compassion occur every day and often go unpublicized, a recent act of selflessness by Reverend Dan Brandt, a Ministry chaplain, received widespread attention, and for good reason.

While traveling on the Kennedy Expressway on February 17, Reverend Brandt witnessed an accident in which an automobile overturned into the median before striking a sign. Reverend Brandt summoned an ambulance to the scene and assisted in extracting the injured driver from the wrecked vehicle.

Though Reverend Brandt has sought to dispel the attention drawn to him for his mettle, the Chicago Wolves will give him due honor by conferring a Chicago Wolves Hometown Hero award upon him on Saturday, April 9, at 7 p.m. when the Wolves host the Manitoba Moose. Reverend Brandt will receive his award at center ice prior to the singing of the national anthem. A special night to honor Reverend Brandt, Wolves’ management has reserved six sections for ticket availability and generously agreed to donate a percentage of proceeds from tickets purchased through this link to the Chicago Police Chaplains Ministry.

Chicago Contrarian is appealing to all to reserve the evening of April 9 and turn out at Allstate Arena to join a celebration honoring Reverend Brandt.

The Chicago Police Department’s Police Chaplains Ministry does noble work. The chaplains who serve officers and their families do so by giving to others what God has given to them.

Please join us on April 9 at Allstate Arena.
