Every day, thousands of Veterans in South Florida go without treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury.
These men and women, our heroes, live with an affliction that impacts every aspect of their lives: Family, career, and social.
Luckily, there is a therapy that not only can alleviate the symptoms, but in some cases help repair the physical trauma to the brain. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has helped tens of thousands of men and women throughout the United States. The problem is that insurance does not cover this therapy for any conditions that are related to the brain.
Through the efforts of the Help Our Wounded (HOW) Foundation, we’re changing the lives of our Veterans in South Florida. Our signature event, Dine For Veterans, is a collaborative effort between restaurants in all four South Florida counties (Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, & Martin), traditional and social media outlets, and you!
Starting Sunday, November 6th, running through the week until Friday the 11th (Veterans Day), you can dine at one of over a hundred South Florida restaurants in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, & Martin counties and the restaurant will donate a portion of the proceeds to our Veterans.
The best part is that the HOW Foundation has been given a matching grant valued at up to $20,000, allowing us to help significantly more local Veterans! Oh, and by the way, 100% of the funds raised that week go toward the Veterans. No administrative or event costs will be taken out of the money raised! That’s 100% of your donations, stewarded by a Platinum Guide Star member, going to help our local veterans with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress who are in need. These are veterans who want to get back to work, who want to reconnect with their families and with our communities…and you can help them.
All you have to do is view the Calendar, choose a participating restaurant, and dine! It’s that easy!
On behalf of the Veterans we serve here in South Florida, a heartfelt thank you!
P.S. Don’t be shy. Share this event with your friends & family!
