About Camp Hometown Heroes
Auction proceeds will be donated to Camp Hometown Heroes, a free week-long overnight summer camp for children and siblings of fallen U.S. Service Members. During their visit to camp, the children begin the healing process with peers who have experienced a similar loss while doing the summer activities that they love. To learn more about this amazing organization, visit the Camp Hometown Heroes website.
Significance of Drawing Time
The auction concludes on Veterans Day, November 11, to honor military veterans. This day coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. At the urging of major U.S. veteran organizations, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.
Happy Veteran’s Day to our soldiers, both past and present.
