The Red Light & Blue Veterans Charity Event Series has been highly successful. To date our events have raised over $35,000 to benefit veterans in our own communities, educated hundreds of civilians about the realities of what our military and veterans face, and contributed to bridging the gap between the civilian and military communities. After the successes of these events, it’s time to take it up a notch. Red Light & Blue 005 will benefit the Charlotte Bridge Home, our favorite local organization that works with veterans in the Charlotte area.
What is the Charlotte Bridge Home? The Charlotte Bridge Home is an organization that aims to do primarily one thing, and that is to connect veterans; connect them to to employers, to government resources, to each other, and to the community. The Charlotte Bridge Home provides a starting point for veterans that are new to Charlotte, and helps them transition into civilian life in a city that has a low military population. For more information, please visitwww.charlottebridgehome.org
The goal of Red Light & Blue is to connect the civilian and military communities, and what better way to connect veterans to the community than to bring a ton of Americans together for a 6 hour dose of good livin’ brought on by GORUCK’s Top Cadre? And how better to finish off the good livin’ than with ACRT and a cook out.
As a bonus, the weekend’s events will include a War Stories And Free Beer event Friday evening. Space is limited for these events, so purchase your tickets now!
