"The Big Band Benefit Ball"

As many of you know, I’m passionate about giving back to our nation’s service members – the few who fight to protect the freedom of this great country. Often times many of these inspiring individuals come home with wounds you can and can’t see, like a missing limb, combat stress, or depression. Because they’ve risked everything for us, I’m committed to raising awareness and funds for these wounded service members and their caregivers.

I am proud to host an event benefiting an organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has a big, audacious goal: to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. I’m challenging myself to help WWP reach this vision, and I need your help.

WWP offers 20 holistic programs to wounded service members and their caregivers completely free of charge and 100% of the funds raised through the this event go directly to Wounded Warrior Project to help fuel these programs.

As a past 10 year member Singer/Entertainer of Bob Hopes USO Tour Troupe- North Hollywood, CA Division, I continue to Support Our Troops wherever support is needed. I have had  previous fund raisers in past years and all have been successful as I hope this will be as well.

I am Proud to be able to show support wherever and whenever I can. My father was Army , all 7 of my Brothers were Army, Navy, Marine , Merchant Marine and one of my Uncles was a Silver Star Recipient in the Air Force-Korean War. I am a PROUD AMERICAN.

I am organizing and hosting a Benefit that is designed to help make the continuation of all services available to all our Military Men and Women who need help in all phases of their personal needs with the Wounded Warriors Project.

"The Big Band Benefit Ball " will bring an evening of wonderful entertainment with a 1940's Big Band Orchestra, Delicious Food, Bar, Dancing, Raffle and Silent Auction with enlightenment and more informative moments in the evening to educate the public that may not have a good and clear understanding of what The Wounded Warrior Project is. The Event is located in Shelby Township, MI at the Shelby Gardens Banquet
and Event Center on Saturday September 29, 2018 and the Honorable Mayor Thom Dionne of Utica, MI and Shelby Twp. Supervisor Rick Stathakis will be a Guest Speakers. Funds raised now and during the Benefit will be given 100% to The Wounded Warriors Project. This
is close and dear to my heart event that I personally am taking on with Pride.
