Grateful for Wheeling fundraiser

Success - Article sent! close

I would like to thank all those who participated in our Flag-Tag fundraiser at the Wheeling Sam's Club, 6/24 -- 6/26. First, thank you to all the volunteers, both Vietnam veterans and friends, who donated their time over the three days.

Second, a very heartfelt thanks to all those that donated their hard-earned money. Third, thanks to the management of Sam's Club for allowing us to set up at their location. We are now hundreds of flags and over 100 hats lighter in our inventory. Thank you!

The profits will be distributed to some of the following organizations: Chicago Sandwich Run; National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum; VA Wheelchair Games; War Dogs and Hospice of Northeast Illinois.
