LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) October 04, 2018
On October 20, 2018 in Westlake Village, California, Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra will benefit from Bravery Uncorked--an afternoon of food, wine, and jazz where 100% of the proceeds will benefit the first National Wounded Warrior Center in Mammoth Lakes, California. A small group of passionate volunteers have spearheaded this fundraising event for the last six years.
This trailblazing facility will function as a civilian life reintegration lodge for active duty and veteran wounded warriors. Here they will have access to education, rehabilitation, and health and wellness programs in a world class environment for therapeutic outdoor experiences.
“In 2017, we set our sights on fundraising $100K and were thrilled by everyone’s generosity and support.” said Executive Director Kathy Copeland. “We are excited to see what we can do this year, and we have amazing auction prizes and an inspiring wounded warrior guest speaker.”
The 7th Annual Bravery Uncorked Benefit will run from 12:30pm-4:30pm on October 20, 2018 at Boccaccio’s Restaurant, overlooking the lake.
The event will include wine tasting, a delicious Hors d’ Oeuvres reception, live jazz with the Jack Daro Trio, and a live and silent auction, including original photography, spa treatments, golf rounds, wines, special event tickets, and more.
Guests will also experience the life-affirming words of guest speaker Josh Elliott, a marine veteran who lost both legs after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan. After returning home, he fell in love with the freedom and exhilaration of mono-skiing and has traveled the world to compete, including the 2018 Paralympic games.
