Donations needed towards Auction for our 5th Annual Benefit.

Feb 23, 16 Donations needed towards Auction for our 5th Annual Benefit.

On April 24th Boots on the Ground NY is holding its 5th Annual Robert Cafici PTSD Awareness Benefit, This event raises funds & awareness to help us assist Veterans coping with PTSD, as well as general support of Our Veterans and Troops. We are in need of donated items and services for our Chinese Basket Auction.baskets


Funds raised will go towards our Veteran Support Programs. We currently maintain a building which houses weekly PTSD and Veteran peer groups, health and Wellness programs, & our care package and pantry programs. BOTGNY also visits PTSD units at local Veteran hospitals bringing much needed supplies and friendship to these Heroes. Our first four events raised over $55,000.00 between ticket sales and the Chinese auction, these events allowed us to move into & maintain our Veteran Activity Center (The VAC) located at 2184 Pond Road (A-4) in Ronkonkoma.


Robert’s family is also very involved in our effort to assist all Veterans. Robert, a combat Marine Veteran lost his battle with PTSD in 2007 after not being able to receive treatments at a VA hospital. This is just one reason why we sought to offer alternative methods of Veterans being able to “vent” their mental battle wounds by opening an anonymous center open to all Veterans. For more about Roberts’s story visit our website.


Boots on the Ground NY is a tax exempt military war Veteran organization. Our Federal tax ID# is 27-4279559.


We thank you for your interest and donation in allowing us the opportunity to host another successful event this year. This year’s event will be held at the Main Event in Farmingdale from 2 pm till 6 pm, we hope you can also join us.


Thank you,
