Toasts to longevity — plus raising funds for fallen first responders

To toast the 165th birthday of its namesake — Francis O’Neill, the Chicago Police superintendant at the turn of the 20th Century — Chief O’Neill’s Irish Pub on North Elston is hosting a big Irish music bash Wednesday, raising funds for the 100 Club of Chicago and it’s financial support for police officers, firefighters and paramedics who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The 100 Club’s CEO Joe Ahern will be joined by Chicago’s finest to act as celebrity bartenders.
