BENEFITING: The USO
Fiji is hosting a humvee push on October 22nd from 1-3pm in front of our new residence at 670 E 16th Ave. in Eugene! All proceeds from the event will be going to the United Service Organization, better known as the USO. We’re really excited to be supporting the nation’s leading organization when it comes to serving the men and women of the US military and their families. Some of the many services the USO provides include enabling telecommunication lines for soldiers abroad to call their loved ones back home, care packages created during the holiday season for soldiers who cannot celebrate at home, and the opportunity for veterans to read bedtime stories to their children back home. Our primary method of fundraising is selling tickets to the event itself - teams of 10 will register for $8/person and will compete to push a military humvee down the street as fast as they can. Prizes will be given to the fastest times for males, females, and coed divisions, and there will be free food, drinks, and gift cards to local restaurants available throughout the day as well. If you are looking to attend the event and would like to buy tickets, please contact Sam Bell at (808) 223-9926 or Jordan Patin at (907) 952-7470. If you’re unable to attend, we are also accepting modest donations of $20-$30, again with all proceeds going directly to the USO.
