The Bets for Vets casino night at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will help the Museum continue and expand its new programming for military service members and their families.
The overall goal of these programs is to provide a safe, understanding environment for veterans, especially those with post-traumatic stress (PTS/PTSD) or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Structured social opportunities at the Museum can build a sense of community for those making the difficult transition back to civilian and family life. By welcoming veterans from a wide range of experiences, the Museum acts as a bridge for individuals to share their own stories and forge connections.
$200 donation = 2 tickets
$125 donation = 1 ticket
Your contribution will support:
- These two-hour programs include a hands-on tour of the Museum, experiments and design challenges intended to engage the whole family. The programs foster opportunity for military families to strengthen their bonds and connect with families in similar situations.
- On select evenings, veterans explore the Museum without the typical crowds and then join peers for a close look at the Museum’s collection, conversation, and a creative exercise. The event concludes with a catered dinner and casual conversation.
- Veterans who cannot physically visit the Museum because of current or recent hospitalization will be able to experience the Museum and connect with each other via an online community.
- The Museum is recruiting veterans from a wide range of backgrounds and military and post-service experience to serve as advisors for all ongoing veteran programs and resources.
