The EXPO patriotism comes as no surprise that they would also be home to a veteran charity, the American Healing Arts Foundation (AHAF). AHAF gives veterans free art classes and art therapy throughout the EXPO’s ten week event. Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) remain high for both wounded and uninjured soldiers, plus suicide and divorce rates continue to soar. Art is proven to be a great form of therapy. These classes provide veterans the ability to interact with award- winning art instructors, witness their own creative side, the opportunity for an art career, adding encouragement, hope and healing for the future plus exercise the power of rehabilitation. These classes are intended to reunite veterans with their fellow veterans, away from hospitals and the battlefield, in a peaceful environment. The EXPO has taken their devotion for our troops so seriously that they are donating one dollar out of every $10 season pass to the Foundation and the great American Veterans.
