Heroes on the Town

The Heroes Campaign continued this past weekend with two major events that attracted the strong, brave and single alike. Our call center’s Yellow Ribbon Warriors hosted “Win a Date with a Service Man” at the Red Star Tavern Friday night. Dates with fifteen of the military’s finest were auctioned off to the highest bidder. Participants also accepted push-up challenges from ‘civilians.’ Those who brought their A-game left with Red Star gift cards.

Saturday 10 brave cyclists took on our chapter’s first “Ride for the Red” at Cherokee Park. Riders began at 6 p.m. Saturday and concluded at 11 a.m. on Sunday. Our chapter’s own Logan McCulloch completed 50 laps at “Ride for the Red”—that totaled 119 miles!

Together the two events raised over $1,400 for the Heroes Campaign!
