The GVS Club of Chicago is an Illinois not for profit corporation which has two main objectives:

1 Providing, primarily through our annual luncheons, an opportunity for a social gathering and reunion for persons who grew up on the West Side of Chicago between approximately 1930 to 1960. The word “Vest” used instead of “West” is intended as an homage to the mostly immigrant Jewish parents and grandparents of our members, currently numbering well over 300.

2 Sponsoring ambulances through AFMDA, the American Friends of Magen David Adom (the Israeli Red Cross) and contributions to research and people who need help charities.

In 2013, our 9th ambulance which was dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre was presented at a special ceremony in Newtown CT attended by GVS Board members Herb Kanter and Art Farber.

We need your help in order to continue to fund these significant acquisitions. Please mail your tax deductible checks made out to GVS (a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization) to:
