BENEFITING: Intrepid Museum Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Sep 26, 2015
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.
By donating to this campaign, you are helping the Intrepid Museum develop new programming for veterans with traumatic brain injury and psychological health conditions along with their families. This pilot project is a natural expansion of the Museum’s Access Initiative which currently serves children and adults with physical, cognitive, emotional/behavioral and sensory disabilities.
The target audience for Programs for Veterans and Families are Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS/PTSD) or Traumatic Brian Injury (TBI), and those who have been recently deployed or hospitalized.
Your contribution will support:
- Military Family Programs – Fostering a safe and social space for military families; programs include guided tours of the Museum with hands-on activities.
- In-Depth Dialogue – Facilitated forum for veterans to respond to the Museum’s collection and share experiences with one another.
- Videoconferences – Create an online community for veterans who cannot physically visit the Museum.
