Dear Friends at Hupy and Abraham,
On behalf of the American Legion Auxiliary Waukesha County Council, thank you for your extremely generous donation in support of the “Walk, Run and Roll for our Veterans and their Families” event held on June 9, at Fowler Park in Oconomowoc.
73 registrants and 24 volunteers enjoyed the great weather and routes through Oconomowoc and then had refreshments, listened to the J Ryan Trio perform, applauded those runners who were awarded medals, and listened with anticipation as the raffle winners were drawn.
Your contribution enabled us to donate $2300 to each of the following facilities: Dayton House in Kenosha, the Hoptel on the grounds of the Zablocki Administration Medical Center in Milwaukee, and Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin Tiny House Initiative.
Nearly a century ago, our organization was founded in the spirit of Service Not Self. Our mission is to support the American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our service members, veterans and their families. We are proud to be the world’s largest patriotic service organization.
Once again, thank your for your generosity and your support of our veterans and their families.
For God and Country,
Jill C. Gust
