Proceeds from the 2017 Event Benefitted:
Austin’s Military Playrooms
An initiative of the Mario Lemieux Foundation, Austin’s Military Playrooms are cheerful playrooms for children and families of our veterans and active duty warriors. The playrooms provide a safe, calming and comfortable environment within military medical facilities for our special military families. Austin’s Playrooms allow families the ability to escape the burden of difficult or often extended medical situations and focus on health and healing. Austin’s Military Playrooms are currently operating in three locations: Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton and Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune.
Gary Sinise Foundation
The Gary Sinise Foundation serves our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. They do this through a variety of programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities. This includes their R.I.S.E. program (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) which builds specially adapted smart homes for America’s severely wounded defenders. Each home features automated amenities to ease the daily challenges these heroes face.
