Event to Help Wounded Combat Troops-- TOMORROW

 Wondering how to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon?  You are not too late to enjoy good food, drink and entertainment for a worthy cause – helping our troops.  Come meet Taya Kyle, wife of The American Sniper.  Tax deductible tickets WILL be available at the door.

Dear Friend,

I trust your summer has been filled with fun—vacations, barbeques, trips to the beach – legs and arms intact.  When you woke up this morning, you probably climbed out of your own bed, got into your own shower, went downstairs toyour own kitchen to eat breakfast, and walked out your own front door.

For many of our combat veterans their summer was filled with painful surgeries and months away from loved ones because they chose to offer their all to protect our freedom.  It is disgraceful that the government does not adequately meet their needs.  But it doesn’t and we can help fill the void.

Here is something you can do.

For the more than 52,000 U.S. soldiers who have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan, the journey back home doesn't end once they set foot on American soil. The recovery process is often long and difficult, and can keep them from returning to their hometowns for months, or even years. Many of these men and women receive treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD.

To raise money to build temporary residential housing for wounded soldiers and their families, the Republican Women of Baltimore County are hosting theVineyard & Valor event at Dejon Vineyards on Sunday, September 20th, 2015, from 3:00pm-7:00pm.

With the purchase of a $100 (tax deductible) ticket, you gain access to the event, which features Taya Kyle, widow of Chris Kyle and author of American Wife: A Memoir of Love, War, Faith and Renewal, as the guest of honor, as well as food (donated by Mission BBQ), drinks, wine, and entertainment. 

The proceeds from each ticket sale go directly to Feherty's Troops First Foundation and help fund the construction of the Leroy Petry Village of Honorfor wounded veterans and their families.

If you have not yet gotten your ticket  PLEASE consider the debt of gratitude we all share and order your ticket today The deadline for mailing  tickets is September 10th to ensure that you have receive your ticket in time.  Tickets purchased after September 10th can be picked up at the registration tables at the event.  We still have tickets available at the door.
