Fantastic cause, Dave.

Why don't you post about this on the BBQ Brethren facebook page and see if you can drum up some support?

Are you just doing the cooking or are they looking for you to also donate the food? If you are supplying the food, do you have a budget in mind?

Eric

Thank you all!

The Brethren will be represented as well as the Great Lakes BBQ Association.

Eric I don't do the facebook thing, and I am taking care of all the food.
Between the Brothers here that have donated to this cause, and the GLBBQA I've gotten $400+ towards food.
Also Mad Hunky has donated rubs and Brine for the hog.
Any and all help is appreciated.

Thank you all who are helping out to raise awareness and funds for the Wounded Warrior Project!

Hey all, just wanted to bump this, fantastic cause!

If at all possible, toss in a few bucks, our vets deserve it!

Hey Dave, PM me an PayPal email address. Every time I see this thread I think I should donate. Need to quit procrastinating...

Cool Brian I hope you can be there but getting that cooker is paramount to us having enough cook space for the cooks we have to do.

As a disabled vet, I would like to thank you for your where your heart is, but I have no love for the Wounded Warrior Project. 67% of their revenue went to 'expenses' the last fiscal year. Their top officers make exorbitant salaries, $330K for Steven Nardizzi. GuideStar only gives them 3/5 stars rating, whereas Charity Watch gave them a C+. Compare this to Fisher House, who gets an A+, with only 6% going to expenses. It is the highest rated military charity.

I certainly don't mean to rain on your parade; I just like for the facts to get out there. Bill O'Reilly can KMA, and I am quite conservative. I think people should know where their hard-earned charity dollar is going. We give to Fisher House. Another little known military charity is Semper Fi Fund / Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, which a good friend (a retired Marine) gives to -- also A+.

Thanks again for your willingness to help vets -- the VA is certainly failing in that regard.

Thanks a lot for your service to our country Okie.
Also I do appreciate your adding that to the thread.

This wasn't put together by me, I was just asked to cook for them and doing what I can to help. As are all the great folks who are donating to make this happen.

Not to take away from what your doing Dave...
For those that can make it this Sunday ( always fathers day)
http://www.walleyesforwarriors.com/

Come out and support your Vets!! I sure would like to see the bleachers filled with folks cheering the Vets as they come back in with their walleye.
They are always looking for volunteers and donations each year.
Last year we cleaned over 1500 walleye that the Vets were able to catch ( that was 4 hrs of straight filling walleye), so each Vet took home 3lbs of cleaned walleye fillets.

Thanks for posting Okie it's good information. It makes me mad hearing how little of contributions actually make it to the people for which it's intended.
