Challenge 22 - Suicide Awareness and Prevention

American Legion Post 63


Goals & Objectives

The Goals for this event: •, Bring 2,000 to 4,000 West Orange county families together for a day of fun (music, food, beer, entertainment, walk) while raising awareness to this serious problem. •, Raise $40,000 to $50,000 thru donations, sponsorships and event revenue to cover event expenses (keep these as low as possible), while donating the balance to the American Legion’s 501c3 called PROJECT: VetRelief and other local Veteran serving non-profits. •, Have Winter Garden FL become the model for the rest of the nation in how to engage a community into a serious Veteran issue.
