B2G Charity Social on 12/1 Benefits Military Members Wounded in Action and Families and Children of Those Killed in Action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The American Small Business Coalition again names American Freedom Foundation as beneficiary of its annual Charity Bash featuring great federal sector networking, plenty of eats, a silent auction and raffle, door prizes and guest bartenders from SBA, Air Force, GSA, U.S. Army Logistics Innovation Agency, USAID, Washington Technology and Federal News Radio.

Columbia, MD November 23, 2010 - - When the doors open on the 2010 Holiday Charity Bash on December 1st, in between the discussions about the holidays and federal sector business opportunities, nearly two hundred guests from Government and Industry will embark on a journey to surpass the amount of donations raised last year to support our military men and women.

"At last year’s Holiday Charity Bash, our goal was simply to kick off the holidays with a festive social, and through our silent auction, raffle and guest bartender tips, write a donation check in support of the great work being done at American Freedom Foundation,” states Guy Timberlake, chief visionary officer and co-founder of The American Small Business Coalition. "We had no idea our sponsors and guests would provide us the means to write a check for more than $5,000 after only a couple hours.”

"Every contribution makes a difference to the lives of our men and women in uniform wounded in action, and the families of those who make the ultimate sacrifice,” says Sergeant Major of the Army (retired) Jack Tilley, co-founder of the American Freedom Foundation. "Through its efforts, The American Small Business Coalition is helping us fulfill the AFF mission.”

Some of the organizations listed as AFF Beneficiaries include Homes For Our Troops, United Through Reading Military Program, America’s Adopt A Soldier, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), Fisher House, Military Child Education Coalition, Operation Rebound and Still Serving Veterans.

On the evening of October 9th at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA on the last night of the Fall American Freedom Festival, SMA Tilley, his team and sixty sponsors contributed more than $115,000 to numerous military based charities supporting Veterans, active duty military, wounded warriors and their families. The headliner for the evening’s festivities was country music legend Hank Williams, Jr. who brought along his Rowdy Friends Tour 2010. He along with performers Colt Ford, Jamey Johnson and Josh Thompson signed an acoustic guitar which was presented to The ASBC and is one of the featured items for the silent auction on December 1st.
