Blue Ridge Veterans Celebrate $15K Fundraising Efforts

Posted: Updated:

The Blue Ridge Veterans celebrate raising more than $15,000 during 2012 for local veterans organizations, including the building of a smart home through the Tunnel to Towers Foundation for Patrick County Marine J.B. Kerns.

The celebration was held at the Vinton Veterans Memorial on the anniversary of the D-Day Invasion.

In 2012, the Roanoke Valley joined together to honor and recognize the men and women putting their lives on the line during the first regional effort to say thank you to our veterans, active duty military, and their families, while giving back to local organizations.

During the ceremony, a check in the amount of $500 was presented to the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program and the Military Family Support Center.
