Last year, the patriotism and generosity of community members enabled WC Challenger Charities – in partnership with 1,000 Miles Till Home – to donate four homes to wounded veterans through the Military Warriors Support Foundation’s Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program.
This year, organizers hope to donate another.
Organizers of the campaign on Friday said that $5,500 of the $20,000 had been raised, and they hope to close in on their goal during the 2nd Annual Military Warrior Heroes Night.
The barbecue dinner fundraiser is Saturday, March 29, at First Baptist Church in Decatur.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and dinner will be served at 6.
There will be a live auction and music.
Lt. Gen. Leroy Sisco, founder and chief executive officer of Military Warriors Support Foundation, will be present. He is a former deputy commander of the 49th Armored Division of the U.S. Army and former Commander of the Texas State Guard.
There is no cost to attend, but there will be an opportunity to make a financial contribution at the end of the program.
Seating for the dinner is limited. RSVP by calling Bree at 940-627-3235.
