paws4vets first annual dinner and fund raiser 

Placeholder Picture

This Chapter was founded in 1964 by military members to take care of the military!  Now we have the opportunity and distinct honor to help Veterans in serious need by supporting paws4vets. This organization trains assistance dogs and places them with veterans suffering from combat injuries such as PTS or even attempted suicide. These dogs have a proven history of saving lives! This is our only fund-raising event for the year. Please attend this worthy and fun event splendidly organized by Chairperson Col. Rita Kurek. Volunteer to help and sell or buy the raffle tickets as you are able!

Unlike normal dinners, you will need a ticket for this event due to the door prizes and sales to non-members. We have only 100 tickets to the event so please reserve your tickets by August 12, 2018 at which time we will open sales to the public if needed. Don’t get left out! This event is open to members, family, and friends - the more the merrier for our wonderful raffles, prizes, and fundraising efforts!  Please indicate on your reservation form if you wish to have your tickets mailed or pick them up at “will call” at the event. The paws4vets Directors and veterans with dogs will be present. BG (Dr.) Stan Minken USAF (Ret.), 40 years experience, tell us about veteran health issues!

You were mailed ten $10 donation raffle tickets for great vacation stays, gift baskets, and a gift card. This raffle is one part of our fundraising effort and we would respectfully ask that each member sell or buy the tickets whose proceeds will go directly to the foundation. Rita Kurek has extra tickets if you can sell more!!  Please let her know. If you have not already, return the ticket stubs and money with your event ticket reservation by August 12.  Even if you cannot attend the event, we hope you can assist us in helping our fellow service members with raffle sales!  Let’s have a fantastic first annual event!!  For questions, extra tickets or to volunteer, please call Rita at 410-294-4913.
