Great News! Though the Great Chicago Fire Hydrants auction has come and gone, there is a selection of hydrants available for sale at this time. Please click here to see photos of the available hydrants. Details for purchase are below. We hope to sell all hydrants by noon Tuesday, December 24.
- The minimum price of each hydrant is $500, the fair market value of the hydrant.
- If you would like to offer more than $500, you may – and the 100 Club and our families would be most grateful.
- Because buyers will be receiving a hydrant valued at $500, only amounts over $500 will be tax deductible.
- Upon receipt of payment, buyers will be notified how to collect their hydrants. Delivery by professional, union movers is available at a discounted rate of $130-$150 (may be more depending on location); if you choose to pick up your hydrant, there is a $47 charge for the professional, union movers to wrap the hydrant and bring it to your vehicle.
If you would like to proceed, please e-mail ([email protected]) with the Hydrant Number and your Offer Amount.
Thank you again for your generous support. On behalf of 100 Club of Chicago and families of fallen first responders, we wish you a very Happy Holiday season.
