|zAbout the 2011 Holiday Charity Bash|
So, what exactly is the
We describe it as:
"A Helping Hand for Our Wounded Warriors and Families of Our Fallen Heroes."
The American Small Business Coalition Holiday Charity Bash™ is the National Capital Region's most festive networking and fundraising event, bringing out the best and most generous from the government contracting community at the start of the holiday season. Since 2009, sponsors, donors and guests have combined to raise more than $15,000 to retrofit housing for injured and disabled veterans, fund education programs for the children of military families and provide outpatient military care at Naval Medical Centers, to name just a few.
Every dollar raised has great impact! The nearly $8,000 raised during the 2010 event was immediately used to help homeless veterans with care programs and job training initiatives. For 2011, our goal is to hand-over $10,000.00 to our charity partners at American Freedom Foundation by the end of the evening, and we need your support!
For the third year in a row The ASBC has partnered with the American Freedom Foundation (AFF), a 501(c)3 organization co-founded by retired Sergeant Major of the Army Jack Tilley, that channels $.95 of every dollar raised to programs supporting our military and their families through medical, rehabilitative and reintegration services for wounded warriors and family services including mentoring and child education programs.
As we prepare for this year's Holiday Charity Bash™ on November 30, 2011 in Tysons Corner, it is my hope you will support us by attending this year's event, becoming a sponsor or providing a donation to the silent auction which provides the means for our charity partner to accomplish their goals.
In addition to supporting the mission of the American Freedom Foundation, this event continues to be a fantastic networking opportunity for the federal contracting community. This year we anticipate more than 300 guests from Government and Industry in addition to our volunteers, guest bartenders, VIP's and more!
On behalf of The American Small Business Coalition, the American Freedom Foundation, our military men and women and their families and our sponsors, we look forward to seeing you in Tysons Corner at the 2011 Holiday Charity Bash™ presented by Mission Essential Personnel!
