Legacy Honored through Charity

This fundraiser has been created to pay it forward in memory of a selfless man and soldier who was taken from this world too soon for what should have been his 35th birthday. All proceeds will be given to the charity Angels of America's Fallen, which provides monies for extracurricular activities for children of fallen service members and first responders.
