Each year the Military Order of the Purple Heart organization raises money for the Wounded Warrior Christmas Leave Fund. The money raised helps reunite wounded warriors with their families during the holiday season.
This year, a fundraiser will be held at the New Bern Golf and Country Club on Dec. 1 from 6-8 p.m. Please come out and show your support to the Wounded Warrior Program. Meet the guests of honor — 60 injured military members — and enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. The MOPH is asking for a $50 donation, but they will accept any amount that you can afford.
If you live out of state and can't attend the fundraiser, you can make a difference by donating to this special cause! Please make checks payable to MOPH-Wounded Warrior Leave and mail to 1914 Trent Rd., New Bern, NC 28560.
Special thanks to Steve Tyson, Major General Tom Braaten, USMC (Ret), Thea Kincaid, Jim Casti and all those involved with the Wounded Warrior Project.
