Mounds View High School's Business Management class is hosting a fundraiser called More for Vets to raise money for veterans and the families of soldiers while the soldiers are away. Their goal is to raise $5,000 for Beyond the Yellow Ribbon to help the veterans. The partnership with Beyond the Yellow Ribbon will receive 100% of the proceeds. Beyond the Yellow Ribbon creates awareness for veterans, and connects service members and their families with community support, services, training, and resources.
The evening will include an Italian Buffet dinner, two keynote speakers, a silent auction, raffle, and more. Tickets are available for purchase via email request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 651-621-7296 to reserve. The keynote speakers are veterans Barry Henriksen and Richard Slomkowski. They are from Mounds View/White Bear area and will speak about how deployment impacts families and an overview of what Beyond the Yellow Ribbon does and why it is important.
