We deliver a BBQ, live music, needed supplies and a few hours of friendship Every June we host a BBQ at the Northport VA, it’s the same weekend as Father’s Day, this is a fun day with good food and live music for all the Veterans that reside in the VA, we always also invite all of our supporters to join us in spending the afternoon with these Veterans and join us for the day. We don’t charge fees, and everyone is invited for free, but we do need funds to make this event successful. We are asking for sponsors of the event, here is the link http://www.bootsonthegroundny.com/product/7th-annual-run-to-the-va-event-sponsor/ or you can just make a general donation at http://www.BootsontheGroundNY.com/donate  to help with costs to this event. the funds collected for this event go towards purchasing the food (burgers/buns/soda/water/etc) and to purchase 200 t-shirts that we provide the Veterans that attend the gathering. each year we create a t-shirt, and sponsors logo and mentions are on the back. We also bring supplies to the hospitalized Veterans. This is a great day for family and friends, as we need the help of the community, as many of the Veterans are in wheelchairs and can use the help being assisted to and from the grounds as well as help getting their food, but most of all, we all get to make new friends that day, and the Veterans look forward to this. Hope to see you on Saturday June 17th. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/399023410447925/ Share this:PrintTweetEmailMoreShare on TumblrWhatsAppTelegramPocketLike this:Like...
