Dinner Fundraisers

Dinner Fundraisers

We are connecting with Hotels and Yacht clubs throughout Florida and going to every major city in Florida to host a dinner for Veteran Rescue.

Jacksonville, Daytona, Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, West Palm Beach, Naples, etc.

We will be having a silent auction at these dinners with our autographed Celebrity Photos.

We are looking to partner with our supporters.

NEW UPDATES!!

CFC APPLICATION APPROVED!! All Military and Federal employees can  now ask their HR/Payroll person to add us to their charities to donate to before taxes.

Veteran Projects 1 & 4 completed! the Veterans asked to be kept confidential so I numbered them. #1 was landscaping much of the year, adding flower beds. #4 was flooring for a transplant recipient who couldn’t be around mold.

  • Christi Hubbard #2 is in Fl and in need of everything from cabinets, insulation, walls, and more. It’s a $15,000 project. #3 is in Va and also a $2500 project. #5 is in Wa and a $5000 project. #6 is in Fl and is a $2000 project. I obtain home Depot and Lowe’s gift cards to give the Veterans so they can pick what they need. I rotate them until the projects are completed. I use the donations from my working Concession stands to obtain the cards. I’m always looking for donations to help these Vets Home Repair. 3 days ago

KNOW THE LAW

This is a shame!!! And, in Florida, businesses are not even allowed to ask for the papers, only what type of service the dog provides. And they certainly are not allowed to turn them away. Thank you Alex and Skip for your service. This will surely be a learning experience for all who witnessed this event. “Denying a service dog is a Civil Crime of the Federal ADA laws, and a criminal Crime under Florida State laws. Penalties can be compounded. A doctors office recently refused a service dog entry. It was fined $10k by the DOJ. A lawer denied a Service Dog in to their building, and was even warned by another lawyer present that it was illegal. Resulted in a $50,000 judgement by the DOJ, payable over two years. There are very few exceptions when service dogs are may be denied. A person and business should always error on the side that helps the disabled instead of risking a costly lawsuit by denying.” http://2012.servicedogsfl.org/?p=34
