We are very grateful to have this kind of support from the Knighthawks and the community. The proceeds from this event will go a long way toward providing critical, life-changing services for veterans, completely free of charge. We appreciate all of the players and staff so much for their investment in our mission and their desire to join VOC in Serving Those Who Served U.S.”
