Savard to Bring Charity Event To Lake Forest Sportscars

When Denis Savard arrived in Chicago at age 19 in 1980, the Chicago Blackhawks first-round draft choice had never spoken a word of English.

“My first word was copasetic – it means everything’s fine,” said Savard, who hailed from Verdun in the French-speaking province of Quebec.

By the time his Hall of Fame career wrapped up in 1997, his creative play on the ice had sparked a new English phrase — the “Savard Spin-O-Rama,” where the center spun with the puck to avoid defenders, a daring move that often concluded with a back-handed goal.

A few years ago, the well-spoken Blackhawks ambassador created yet another new term: The Denis Savard Foundation. And on Friday, Oct. 21, his non-profit will put on the Monte Carlo Charity Gala at Lake Forest Sportscars in Lake Bluff.

“I was given so much here in Chicago,” said Savard, whose foundation is designed to help both children and veterans. “I’m blessed to have a daughter who’s 23 and healthy. But my nephew’s son is 10 and doesn’t talk. I’ve gotten to meet some of the guys came back from Iraq and Afghanistan. For me to give back is a no-brainer.”

The Monte Carlo Charity Gala — which features honorary co-chairs Melissa and Steve Esposito of Lake Forest, along with local chairpersons Tina Ballis, Ada Boras, Lynne Kennedy, Leslie Gantos and Lori Rozdolsky — anticipates between 250-300 people patronizing its roulette wheel, blackjack tables and other games of chance. The Buckinghams will play, Lovell’s, The Deerpath Inn, Southgate Cafe and Philly G’s will provide food, and former pro athletes such as Chicago Bears Hall of Famer Dan Hampton and one-time Blackhawk right winger Marty LaPointe will chat with attendees.
