Be part of the Annual Veteran Trust Fund Dinner gala on November 9 at Dover Downs Rollins Center.
There are a great many worthy causes that ask for our help, especially as the holiday season draws near. One of them is the Delaware Veterans Trust Fund, administered by the Commission of Veterans Affairs.
Since 2013 the Trust Fund has provided one-time, hand-up grants to veterans in proven need. Last year $104,000 was paid directly to creditors to stop utility cutoffs, repossessions, make emergency repairs on homes and vehicles, and sometimes put food on the table.
The Friends of Delaware Veterans, a volunteer board of military veterans, is hosting its 6th annual fundraising dinner Saturday, November 9, at Dover Downs’ Rollins Center. All of the proceeds will benefit the Trust Fund. Maj. Gen. Michael Berry will keynote this year’s dinner. The registration deadline is Oct. 30.
Tickets are $100 and include musical entertainment, a plated meal, and silent and live auctions of valuable items, including MV 1 and 2 (Military Veteran) license plates. Contact Sherri Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 302-257-3117 to reserve a seat. No tickets will be sold at the door.
