Lost money, assets discovered during Cash Dash event


Illinois State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias’ office wants to return more than $900 million in lost, forgotten and abandoned funds to Chicago-area residents.

A representative from Giannoulias’ office will conduct Cash Dash searches on the state’s online database from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, July 11 at Soldier Field in Chicago during the World Cup Festival. 

The Cash Dash program reunites Illinois residents with their lost or forgotten wealth, also known as “unclaimed property.” This wealth can be anything from long-lost bank accounts to entire estates that never made it to a rightful owner.

The Treasurer’s office is holding a total of $1.4 billion in unclaimed property for 10.2 million residents and businesses – with more than $900 million belonging to Cook County residents. The Cash Dash program aims to give it all back.

The World Cup Festival and screening of the final game is sponsored by the South African Consulate General in partnership with Ethnicity Soccer. For festival information, visit www.africachicago.com.
