This summer, drive-in movies made a comeback in Chicago as local company Chi-Together created new opportunities to connect while keeping social distance. In support of the amazing work done by our team this year, Physicians Immediate Care was proud to sponsor the Healthcare Heroes Night at the Chi-Together Drive-In on September 12, 2020.
For five weeks in August and September, the sounds of festive music and socially distanced crowds had become a familiar backdrop at Soldier Field. The socially safe drive-ins were a refuge where people could relax and enjoy quality time together along Chicago’s beautiful lakefront.
Healthcare Heroes Night was a chance for clinic team members, their families, and the community to get out and enjoy the comedy movie, Anchorman. As cars poured into the parking lot at Soldier Field, moviegoers were greeted by Physicians Immediate Care’s community ambassadors. Each person received a complimentary hand sanitizer and a coupon for $5 off flu shots as they drove in and got ready for a night of family-friendly entertainment. Patrons enjoyed a lively performance of songs familiar to multiple generations, performed by local Chicago band, The Suppliers. A spacious cabana welcomed guests as they snacked on popcorn and beverages, and mingled from a safe distance.
As the sun tucked itself in to welcome the night sky, the emcee interviewed PIC’s community relations manager, Jimmy Quattrocki. Jimmy commended the way Physicians Immediate Care’s team rose to the occasion and provided innovative solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. From offering our new Curbside Care Program to implementing same-day rapid testing and results for COVID-19, our staff members have been going above and beyond for our community all year.
To honor our clinic teams, we displayed their photos on three sixty-foot screens. Attendees honked their car horns and flashed their headlights to show their support before the movie played. Before the film and during intermission, the big screen played videos recognizing our team’s heroic work, and informing everyone of the affordable healthcare services they can always count on, thanks to our staff.
Thank you to everyone who attended our special night!
