Fundraising Event Helps Veterans

A non-profit is hosting an event this weekend with one goal in mind to help veterans.  

The two-day Fight for Vets fundraiser is happening in Harrison.

A non-profit organization called 2helpvets is behind this event. They’re dedicated to helping veterans gain greater financial independence.

This weekend’s fundraiser includes vendors, food, live music and a silent auction.

Organizers said this is all about recognizing those men and women who have fought for our country’s freedom.  

“It makes me feel wonderful,” said Kathleen Gierum, 2helpvets President. “I think the key to any non-profit is for people to pull together all the non-profits to help veterans.”

The free event runs through Saturday. For more information, click here.
