BENEFITING: FINAL SALUTE
EVENT DATE: Aug 03, 2013
Widewater Beachfest is a fun, family day on the shores of the Aquia Creek in Stafford, VA, where neighbors and friends come together for an annual Beachfest, featuring music, games, and raffles. The annual charity event supports Final Salute, Inc., a non profit which helps find safe and suitable housing for the 15,000 homeless female Veterans in the United States. Final Salute has two homes in the Virginia area and one in Ohio where homeless female Veterans and their children can live while they get back on their feet and eventually secure a job and get back into society. Many of the Veterans have severe injuries, incredible challenges, and children to care for. We help raise the funds to get them and their children off the street.
Final Salute also created and sponsored the Inaugural Ms. Veteran America Pageant, which recognizes female Veterans and the "woman beyond the uniform"...the second Ms. Veteran America Pageant is scheduled for October 2013...to see the photo's of these American Heroines from the 2012 event, go to www.msveteranamerica.org
We are truly blessed in Widewater, as are many of our boater friends. While we participate in many charity events throughout the year, we love this event which brings together family fun, boating, camping, music, and some great raffle prizes, such as 55" large screen TVs. So help us reach our goal and come out for a great day in the sun!
