Hope For The Warriors® and American Legion Post 754 hosted the 4th Annual Casino Night at the New York Athletic Club on April 21, 2015. All proceeds from the event benefit Hope For The Warriors®, a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.
Casino Night 2015 raised over $38K to support local and nationwide military families. The Barry Fixler Foundation/Semper Cool (fixlerfoundation.org) and Plaza Construction (plazaconstruction.com) sponsored $10K and $5K, respectively, for the event.
Nearly 200 people enjoyed a night of table games, silent auctions, and inspiring speeches by local veterans. Sponsor Barry Fixler of The Barry Fixler Foundation /Semper Cool and Staff Sgt. Michael Kacer, USA (Ret.) spoke on the importance of supporting military families and the challenges they face. Casino Night is one of several events in the greater New York City region this summer supporting service members and Hope For The Warriors®.
