DDS4Vets, a Treasure Coast non-profit organization, is hard at work to ensure veterans get the help they need. Many veterans need help with saving their homes, getting medical care, and more. There is help out there, but they do not know how to get it. It can be overwhelming. Deb Doherty, CEO, stated “Bridging the gap that veterans face with services that they are entitled to is of utmost importance”. The non-profit also raises money to purchase dogs and have them trained for veterans who need them.
Our ‘Believe in the Mission Gala’ will raise money to help with the service dog costs. The Gala will take place at the Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 6-10 pm. U.S. Army Brigadier General Donald Bolduc (retired) will be the special guest speaker. General Bolduc served eight combat tours during his 32 years in the Armed Forces and received many medals including five Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts.
The event will be emceed by Fox News Commentator David Webb and Dr. Brian Moriarty. Special guests include Director/Producer Michael Gier, Congressman Brian Mast, Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, and more. General Frank Libutti, Founder of Horses & Heroes, will speak at the gala about his organization and DDS4Vets joining forces to offer horse therapy to veterans.
DDS4Vets has joined forces with DoYouGiveARuck, a, Indian River County not-for-profit that raises funds to help veterans, and the homeless. Together they raise money and awareness for veteran issues. The founder of DoYouGiveARuck, Jimmy Lee Jackson and his team members will be honored guests of the gala. Jackson and his team are hosting a Family Fun Ruck Event on Saturday, Sept. 10 at the IRSC Pruitt Campus to raise funds for DDS4Vets.
Sponsors of the gala include National Veterans Alliance and Manchester Insurance. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please contact Deb@DDS4Vets.org for more information or tickets.
