MABANK, Texas (Nov. 20, 2018) – Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation donated $6,100 from its annual Thunder Over Cedar Creek Lake Airshow and veterans golf tournament with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Hope For The Warriors.

Since 2011, the Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation has donated more than $27,000 to Hope For The Warriors and its programs.
The primary fundraiser for the Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation, Thunder Over Cedar Creek Lake Airshow takes place entirely over Texas’ 5th largest lake with an array of civilian and military aircraft. The mission of the Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation is to honor the courageous men and women who have served to protect our American Freedoms and to be of direct benefit to the survivors of those warriors by providing financial support to agencies responsible for their care and nurture.
“Hope For The Warriors provides amazing services for their clientele and Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation is honored to continue its partnership with them,” says President of Cedar Creek Veterans Foundation, Lyn Thomas. “Their ability to use 86 percent of each dollar raised for their programs makes our work to raise money a true labor of love.”
