Wheels In Motion Foundation was founded by Robert (Bob) Gottfred along with his two sons (Jim & Jay) and daughter (Jill) who wanted to make a difference in the community. The Gottfred family decided that donating personal funds to great causes was just not enough and that they had the ability to do more by reaching out to their network of generous family, friends and business associates to attend events that would positively multiply the amount of funds raised. The Foundation's mission is to execute a large and electrifying annual event that creates community awareness and raises as much funds as possible for two remarkable nonprofit organizations, Gilda’s Club Chicago and Teach For America. Each of these two astounding nonprofits positively influence our community on a daily basis and are near and dear to the Gottfred family and their friends.
We hope that you will join us at our annual gala event and help us raise money for both Gilda’s Club and Teach For America.
