Ron Smithers, Commander of Phoenix American Legion Post 418, seeks volunteers and donations for the Post's first annual Music Fest 1 for the Wounded Warriors Project, to be held Saturday, September 14th from 1 PM to 7 PM at American Legion Post 418, 9 Oswego River Road, Phoenix, NY on Route 57 at the north end of the village just north of the high school.
Smithers said, "The five bands who have agreed to donate their time have allowed us to hold down the admission donation to $5.00. Throughout the day we'll be holding raffles, 50/50's, a bake sale and a silent auction."
"The Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) helps thousands of Wounded Warriors and their families as they return home from the current conflicts. Wounded Warriors who have incurred service-connected injuries or illness on or after September 11, 2001 are eligible for the WWP Alumni program. When a warrior faces challenges, the family experiences those challenges along with their warrior. WWP supports family members who suddenly find they are serving as full-time supporters or caregivers. You can help the Wounded Warrior Project by volunteering your time or making a donation," Smithers went on to say."Right now, we're seeking donations and volunteers to make this event a success. If you can make a donation, or volunteer some time, contact Donna at 315-378-7936 or by e-mail at email@example.com. We sincerely appreciate any raffle or bake sale donation and each volunteer. All proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project," Smithers concluded.
