Volunteer Spotlight: RJ Castro

American Red Cross of Chicago & Northern Illinois volunteer, RJ Castro, will be unveiling a bronze statue this June. RJ has been sculpting “Captain Abraham Lincoln, Black Hawk War,” a seven foot version of a smaller sculpture that was given to the Lincoln Presidential Library in 2015. The sculpture will be unveiled June 23, from 1-3 pm at the Black Hawk War Monument, 14109 W Blackhawk Rd, Pearl City, IL.  We encourage everyone to check it out! Pictures of RJ and the smaller copy of the sculpture are shown below.
