VFW Buddy Poppy Extravaganza Fundraiser & Campaign Kickoff Celebration - Angelina County
Name: VFW Buddy Poppy Extravaganza Fundraiser & Campaign Kickoff Celebration - Angelina County
Date: May 21, 2022
Time: 5:30 PM - 10:00 PM CDT
You are invited to attend the Buddy Poppy Extravaganza Fundraiser and campaign kickoff celebration hosted by VFW Post 1836 and VFW Post 1836 Auxiliary.
Each May, in anticipation of the Memorial Day observance, VFW Posts across the national distribute the red Buddy Poppy flowers reminding us to never forget the sacrifices that purchased the freedoms we enjoy today. Donations received by all VFW Posts during the month of May through the Buddy Poppy Campaign are deemed 'restricted funds' by VFW National Headquarters and must directly benefit veteran assistance programs.
The 2022 Buddy Poppy Campaign fundraising goal for VFW Post 1836 is $80,000! Join us as we celebrate the kickoff of the largest annual fundraising effort in Angelina County that must directly benefit military veterans and their families.
The Extravaganza features dinner, live music, live and silent auctions, raffles and a great party! Tickets will go on sale to the public April 1, so please like and follow VFW Post 1836 on social media to be notified and receive updates as our campaign progresses.
To make this endeavor a success, it takes help in the form of ticket sales, donations of raffle and auction items, corporate sponsors, table sponsors, and many, many volunteers of ALL ages to distribute Buddy Poppy flowers at locations across Angelina County. VFW Post 1836 & Auxiliary will be calling on YOU to join us in ensuring no military veteran within our reach goes without desperately needed resources on our watch!
