The event will have a raffle as well as a special menu with proceeds from both directly supporting Operation R and R. A film crew from Go To Team will also be onsite to record messages as welcome videos for the visiting troops.

About the Fundraiser
Have you been in the airport to see a service man or woman leave for deployment? It’s gut-wrenching. Children who don’t understand where their parent is going or why; spouses worried about the fate of their betrothed overseas. Men and women are putting their lives on the line to defend virtual strangers with amazing bravery. The problem comes when they return to their families and suddenly they are the stranger.
Many deployed troops return to new babies, lost relatives, lost friends, and most of all lost time. Operation R and R is an organization that provides vacations at no cost to military service men and women returning from worldwide deployment and their families. This service gives the family unit time in a relaxing environment to reunite and reestablish bonds after being separated for months or years.
