The Advanced Math & Science Academy girls middle school basketball team joined us Friday to host our 2nd February dinner. Our Heroes were served pizza, a beverage cart wheeled refreshments through the dining hall and made to order ice cream sundaes with homemade cookies topped off their dinner. A huge thank you to the team and coach Jenna for making this night special for our Heroes. “It’s so nice to see the kids here and spend some time with them,” Keith, a Veteran at dinner commented, “They are the reason I served my country, to try and make it better for them.”
I had the great privilege to share the story of The Imagine Project during The 200 Foundation’s 51st Annual Dinner last month. With over 300 guests in attendance, the Foundation honored One Mission, an organization focused on improving hospital conditions for families with children with cancer. Imagine and United Way were also highlighted during the evening.
We were able to share Imagine’s focus on four core areas:
- Supporting Veterans moving from shelters into their own home
- Recreational activities – twice monthly pizza & game nights
- Community awareness including our Imagine Ambassador program
- Veterans programs support
Imagine was so fortunate to raise additional funds during the event which will be used toward some recreational programs for our Veterans. We are currently planning a fall foliage trip for our Heroes!
