With the Walk4Vets fewer than two months away, our fundraising efforts are in full force. This weekend presents two great opportunities to support this great cause.
This Friday night in Ripley West Virginia, members of the Jan Dils staff will be selling 50/50 tickets at the I-77 Raceway Park. Come join us for a night of family fun as the Ohio Valley Sprint Car Association hits the track for some great racing action. Starting at 5:00 pm Friday the Jan Dils crew will be selling the tickets for $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. We appreciate the fine folks at I-77 Raceway Park for allowing us to raise money for our Veterans.
Friday night is not the only opportunity you will have this weekend to help us raise money for Veterans. The fundraising will continue on Saturday at the Park Shopping Center Sno Biz in Parkersburg, WV. From 11:30 am until 10:00 pm, this local franchise has generously agreed to donate half of their earnings from the day to the Walk4Vets. So, if you are out an about on Saturday, stop by this location for some refreshing snow cones.
Both events will also provide opportunities for interested individuals to sign up for the Walk4Vets. We will have registration forms on hand, as well as other literature regarding the walk, and the all new 5K.
As a reminder, the Walk4Vets supports local Veterans charities. Jan Dils established the Walk4Vets foundation in 2011 to give back to local Veterans. Now, for our third event, we are supporting the Veterans Corps at WVU-P. This group of Student-Veterans is dedicated to helping Veterans graduate college as well as engaging in community based charity work.
