I just wanted to share this with you!
"The Massachusetts Iraq and Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Memorial Fund was founded by local decorated military members, veterans and Gold Star Families. Dedicated to honoring Bay State men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and gave their lives to our nation, our group is working with the state officials to create a permanent Memorial to our fallen heroes. Since the state can not fundraise for the Memorial, our group has been selected as the nonprofit partner that will take on the official fundraising role. We have filed the required paperwork needed and our request for 501c3 nonprofit status is currently pending. In the meantime, we are honored to be working with Groton-based Veterans Advocacy Services. So any donation to the memorial will be tax-deductible."
This is an amazing organization that is raising money, to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. These heroes were members of our community, and their families and loved one's should know how much their community appreciates their sacrifices.
"THE MASSACHUSETTS IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN FALLEN HEROES MEMORIAL FUND’s first fundraising dinner is on THURSDAY DECEMBER 2, 2010 at the Boston Convention and Exhibitors Center. We hope that you will join us as a sponsor or in supporting this cause by purchasing a table or tickets. Funds raised at the dinner will be used to support the permanent Memorial to our fallen heroes here in Massachusetts. Dinner sponsorships will also allow some Massachusetts Gold Star Family members who have lost a loved one to attend the dinner free of charge. "
I'll see you at the dinner!
