EVENT DATE Sep 02, 2014


My brother meets every week with a group of fellow spinal cord injury vets at the West Haven, CT Veteran Hospital.  We've been trying to organize a trip to a Yankees/Red Sox game, but the stumbling block is the price of the tickets.  I am trying to raise enough money to send 15 wheelchair-bound vets, who fought us in WWII, Vietnam & the Gulf Wars to the September 2, 2014 Yankee/Red Sox game at Yankee Stadium. These are some incredible guys who have served their country well and I just want to get them all decent seats together, a couple of hotdogs and a few beers.

Here's the cost breakout:

$100.00 per seat for 15 vets = ($1,500.00)

$20.00 per vet for two beers and two hotdogs = ($300.00)

$90.00 for the Crowdrise fee.

The West Haven VA Hospital will provide the transportation from West Haven, CT to Yankee Stadium and I'll go to help out, but I will pay for my own ticket.
