MUSKEGON and SAGINAW, Mich. (PRWEB) May 21, 2015
Jake’s Fireworks, the country’s biggest fireworks wholesaler and retailer, will host a Memorial Day weekend sales event and 42-inch TV giveaway to benefit the families of American veterans at the Muskegon and Saginaw stores.
In honor of the 225 Michigan servicemen and women who gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan, and all veterans from across the U.S. who were injured or killed while fighting for their country, Jake’s Fireworks is offering the World Class Fireworks’ “Folds of Honor” firework cake on sale for $25 throughout the Memorial Day weekend. Jake’s will donate $10 from each sale to the Folds of Honor Foundation to benefit the families of American veterans.
According to the Folds of Honor Foundation, more than one million spouses and children of veterans have been adversely affected by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these, 85 percent do not qualify for federal scholarship assistance. FoldsofHonor.org provides educational scholarships and other forms of assistance to the dependents of military servicemen and women killed or disabled while serving their country.
Since 2013, World Class Fireworks—known as Jake’s Fireworks, with more than 250 stores throughout Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Michigan and Missouri—has been raising funds for the families of veterans by offering the Folds of Honor Firework, a 16 shot, 500 gram cake in red, white and blue. Since then, it has become a favorite for patriotic customers across Michigan, including Jake’s Muskegon and Saginaw customers.
Residents in the Saginaw and Muskegon areas are invited to stop by their local Jake’s Fireworks store over the Memorial Day Weekend to sign up for the chance to win a 42-inch television. Only one TV will be awarded per store, and the winners will be announced Monday, May 25 at 5:00 p.m.
