Veterans, Service Members and Military Families Impacted by Hurricane Harvey Benefit from Donation
CAMPBELL, TEXAS (Jan. 23) – The Sixth Annual Wounded Heroes Benefit Concert raised more than $20,000 to benefit Hope For The Warriors, a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, family and hope for veterans, service members and military families.
Part of the proceeds were used to provide critical assistance to 13 coastal, Texas-based military families in addition to grocery store gift cards for 56 veterans, all impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Located on the Bar-Double Horseshoe Ranch at Clancys Saloon and Stage, the two-day concert is hosted by Frank and Carron Prigmore and family and coincides with Patriot Day each year.
“This event continues to grow each year,” said event organizer Frank Prigmore. “We have experienced firsthand the phrase ‘if you build it they will come.’ ”
While all active-duty military members and veterans attended for free, the annual outdoor concert series has raised more than $76,000 for Hope For The Warriors programs.
Celebrating 11 years of service, Hope For The Warriors assists veterans, service members and military families with a variety of programming including transition services, clinical health and wellness, sports and recreation and community development and engagement.
“When Hope For The Warriors started 11 years ago, we dreamed of families like the Prigmore’s supporting our initiatives,” said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of the nonprofit organization. “The Prigmore family and their guests are truly impacting the well-being of the many Texas-based veterans, service members and families affected by Hurricane Harvey, all who have bravely served and sacrificed for our country.”
